Paramount+ Unveils Trailer For New Docuseries – Lolla: The Story Of Lollapalooza.

Premiering Exclusively On Paramount+ On Wednesday, 22 May.

Paramount+ today revealed the official trailer for the upcoming three-part docuseries Lolla: The Story Of Lollapalooza, which will premiere exclusively on Wednesday, 22 May.

In the summer of 1991, the Lollapalooza music festival was born. What started as a farewell tour for the band Jane’s Addiction, rose from the underground to launch a cultural movement and change music forever.

Lolla: The Story Of Lollapalooza depicts the exciting and strangely symbiotic 30+ year relationship between the iconic festival and Perry Farrell (Jane’s Addiction, Porno for Pyros). Throughout the series, Farrell reconnects with what the event has become and reflects on the festival’s cultural significance across multiple genres and decades.

Directed by the multi-Emmy® nominated Michael John Warren (Spring Awakening: Those You’ve Known, Jay-Z’s Fade to Black) and executive produced by multi-Emmy nominees James Lee Hernandez and Brian Lazarte (McMillions), the three-part series made its triumphant world premiere at the 2024 Sundance Film Festival.

Lolla: The Story Of Lollapalooza is produced by MTV Entertainment Studios and FunMeter, in partnership with C3 Presents. The series is executive produced by Bruce Gillmer and Amanda Culkowski (MTV Entertainment Studios), James Lee Hernandez and Brian Lazarte (FunMeter), Daniel Gibbs and Mat Whittington (C3 Presents) and Brian Levy (Entertainment 360). Perry Farrell, Charlie Walker, Charles Attal and Berkeley Reinhold are producers; Matt Kaye and Jordan Bogdonavage are co-executive producers; Shannon Pence is supervising producer. Michael John Warren serves as executive producer and director.

I really don’t know where the series can go tbh. Will be interesting.

Animated series Housebroken, which streamed on P+ in Australia, has been axed after two seasons.

Season 2 of Transformers: EarthSpark premieres on P+ in Australia on June 8.

The new Mean girls movie is not available paramount+ - this is despite Apple TV and justwatch suggesting that it is.

There isn’t a post here suggesting it was ever added, but I have seen outside posts suggesting it became available in March. Surely wouldn’t have been removed that quick if it was,

It’s probably an error. I’d say it’s linked to the original which is on Paramount+
