SEPTEMBER 11, 2018

Los Angeles, CA – Shout! Factory will release the comprehensive 2017 HBO Documentary Films’ series Rolling Stone: Stories From The Edge, on Blu-ray and DVD on September 11, 2018.

Directed by Oscar®-winner* Alex Gibney (Taxi to the Dark Side and Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief) and EMMY®-winner Blair Foster (George Harrison: Living in the Material World), and narrated by Jeff Daniels, Rolling Stone: Stories From the Edge chronicles the last 50 years of American music, politics and popular culture.

This six-part special offers the unique perspective of a celebrated magazine that always understood that rock ‘n’ roll was more than just music – it was a cultural force that helped shape America and defined generations.

An exhilarating visual and musical experience of the magazine’s history, the series features performances by a dazzling array of artists, including The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Tina Turner, Janis Joplin, The Sex Pistols, The Clash and Ice-T, and music from some of the cultural icons it heralded, including Bob Dylan, John Lennon, Fleetwood Mac and Chance the Rapper. In the process, it also showcases the superb, groundbreaking work of its writers, spotlighting Rolling Stone’s impact on society and providing an engrossing inside look at how the magazine helped shape the zeitgeist and has endured for a half-century.
