Today, HBO Documentary Films announced that Music Box, the new documentary collection created by Bill Simmons, will return for a second season.
The upcoming documentary collection will continue to explore essential moments in music for an artist or band, an iconic album, or the music industry as a whole. As in the first season, each film will be directed by a different and visionary director.
âThe first season exceeded our expectations, we were thrilled with the high caliber of our films and our experiences with the talented people who made them,â said Bill Simmons. “We created a brand that had a unique perspective, now we want to continue to develop it and work with HBO and other great directors.”
âThe gifted storytellers behind every film in the Music Box series uncover surprising and memorable musical moments that have much deeper stories to tell,â commented Lisa Heller and Nancy Abraham, co-directors of HBO Documentary Films. “We look forward to continuing our collaboration with Bill Simmons and the team at The Ringer to bring another exciting season of MUSIC BOX to HBO.”
The first season of Music Box debuted in July 2021 with Woodstock 99: Peace, Love and Rage, directed by Garret Price, and continued in the weekly series this fall with Shredded, directed by Alison Klayman; DMX: don’t try to figure it out, directed by Christopher Frierson; Listen to Kenny G, directed by Penny Lane; Mr. Saturday night, directed by John Maggio; and concludes with Juice WRLD: Into the Abyss, directed by Tommy Oliver on December 16.
