KINGS OF LEON DOCUMENTARY TO PREMIERE ON SHOWTIME(R)

Network Acquires TALIHINA SKY, Detailing The Grammy(R) Winners' Rise To Fame From Bible Belt Beginnings

Premieres Sunday, August 21 at 10 PM ET/PT On SHOWTIME

LOS ANGELES, CA (July 6, 2011) - When three teenaged brothers and their cousin rebelled against their strict, religious Southern upbringing to form a rock band named Kings of Leon, their humble back story garnered almost as much attention as their music. Many questioned if they were really related and if rumors of their father being a Pentecostal preacher were true. Since then, the band has achieved worldwide, Grammy(R) Award-winning success and now, the mystery and myths behind these budding rock legends will be laid to rest in the documentary TALIHINA SKY: THE STORY OF KINGS OF LEON, premiering on SHOWTIME on Sunday, August 21 at 10 PM ET/PT.

The documentary kicks off at the annual Followill family reunion in the back woods of Talihina, Oklahoma, where the boys return to their roots and unwind with their family. First-time director and Followill friend Stephen C. Mitchell weaves personal home videos, unedited interviews and behind-the-scenes footage of the band's journey from their small-town beginnings -- spent in poverty and touring the Bible Belt with their father, a Pentecostal evangelist minister, and their devout mother -- to living the rock star dream.

TALIHINA SKY: THE STORY OF KINGS OF LEON is produced by Casey McGrath for Phear Creative and executive produced by Nathan, Caleb, Jared and Matthew Followill. The film premiered this spring at the Tribeca Film Festival.
