Showtime announces premieres of Go-Go’s & John Belushi documentaries!
Showtime has unveiled the premiere dates for a new slate of documentaries and docuseries including the The Go-Go’s focused on the iconic new wave band, Belushi centered on the deceased comic and actor John Belushi and the four-part Love Fraud.
The Go-Go’s is a documentary feature from Allison Eastwood and chronicled the story of the first all-female band to play its own instruments, write its own songs and soar to No. 1 on the album charts, making history. The film follows the group through their meteoric rise to fame out of the birth of the L.A. punk scene.
Love Fraud is a four-part documentary series from directors Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady that follows the search for Richard Scott Smith, a con-man who for over 20 years used the internet and his charms to prey upon unsuspected women looking for love, eventually stealing their money and their dignity. The series unravels in real time as Smith’s victims band together to seek revenge by turning to a bounty hunter after feeling the justice system has failed them.
Belushi hails from director R.J. Cutler as he dives into a treasure trove of previously unheard audiotapes recorded shortly after iconic comedian John Belushi’s death and examines the too-short life of the once-in-a-generation talent who captured the hearts and funny bones of devoted audiences.
The Go-Go’s is set to premiere on Showtime on Saturday, August 1 at 9 p.m. while Love Fraud will premiere on Sunday, August 30 at 9 p.m. EST and Belushi bowing on Sunday, September 27 at 9 p.m. EST,
