Paramount+ Schedule January 2-8: New TV & Movies

An intriguing three-part documentary is debuting on the Paramount+ Schedule for January 2-8.

On Tuesday, January 3, the streaming service (sign-up for Paramount+ here) will release Sometimes When We Touch, a documentary about soft rock. The project hails from MTV Entertainment Studios together with Gunpowder & Sky. Chuck Thompson wrote the series which sees Lauren Lazin as director. Thompson and Lazin will also executive produce the series. Van Toffler produced Sometimes When We Touch, with Rick Krim serving as co-producer. David Gale, Floris Bauer, as well as Barry Barclay, and Joanna Zwickel co-executive producing for Gunpowder & Sky. Bruce Gillmer and Vanessa Whitewolf executive produce for MTV Entertainment Studios, with Jennifer Yandrisevits serving as Senior Director of Production.

Sometimes When We Touch is the untold story of soft rock, whose artists dominated pop music worldwide in the ‘70s, only to crash and burn in the ‘80s, eventually experiencing one of the most unlikely comebacks in music history,” reads the synopsis. “The series presents all-new interviews with some of soft rock’s biggest legends, like Air Supply (“All Out of Love”), Dan Hill (“Sometimes When We Touch”), Kenny Loggins (“This Is It”), Ray Parker Jr. (“A Woman Needs Love”), Rupert Holmes (“Escape: The Piña Colada Song”) and Toni Tennille (“Love Will Keep Us Together”). Through candid and poignant stories, these stars lead a celebration of the underappreciated music that continues to have a lasting impact on American culture.”

“The connective stories that propel the series are augmented by exclusive interviews with dozens of classic and contemporary musicians like Daryl “DMC” McDaniels, John Ondrasik, LA Reid, Richard Marx, Robert “Kool” Bell, Sheryl Crow, Stewart Copeland, Susanna Hoffs and Verdine White; rarely seen archival interview and performance footage; host commentary that embraces the impact of soft rock while acknowledging the cringey excesses that sometimes led it astray; and a review of its continuing power over a new generation found everywhere from hip hop samples and radio remakes to superhero soundtracks and TikTok posts.”
