DirecTV, ABKCO Films and Brainstorm Media Present Third of Twelve New Documentaries in DirecTV's 'Something to Talk About' Collection

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- DirecTV's Audience Network, known for its daring entertainment programming, unveils the third documentary in its Something to Talk About collection with the debut of THE ROLLING STONES CHARLIE IS MY DARLING - IRELAND 1965 on the Audience Network, Saturday, Nov. 10 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The program will be available on DirecTV shortly after the film's theatrical release in select theaters. Something to Talk About is a twelve-part series of socially and culturally relevant documentaries presented by DirecTV in association with Brainstorm Media.

This legendary film, never officially released to the public, is book-ended with new footage including an introduction by Kurt Loder and a post-film discussion with former Nirvana drummer and Foo Fighters founder, Dave Grohl and legendary music producer, Andrew Loog Oldham, the Rolling Stones' first manager and the film's producer.

With the release of THE ROLLING STONES CHARLIE IS MY DARLING - IRELAND 1965, ABKCO Films presents a meticulously restored and fully-realized version of this legendary film that was never officially released to the public. Originally directed by pioneering filmmaker Peter Whitehead and Oldham, the film was shot during the Stones' weekend tour of Ireland shortly after "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" hit # 1 on the charts. This brand new cut of the film, produced by the GRAMMY(C) Award-winning duo of producer Robin Klein and director Mick Gochanour, features the band's first professionally filmed concert performances and documents the early fan frenzy and riots ignited by the band.

New found and never-before-seen concert footage - including electrifying performances of the band's musical numbers, "The Last Time," "Time Is On My Side" and the first ever concert performance of "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" provide an intimate, behind-the-scenes diary of life on the road with the young Stones.

"We are delighted to partner with DirecTV and Brainstorm Media to offer this rare opportunity to witness rock history as it was being made," said Jody Klein, Chief Executive Officer of ABKCO. "CHARLIE IS MY DARLING offers unparalleled insight into the band's music, creative process and personalities. The film brilliantly documents their intersection, circa 1965, with Irish fans whose unbridled enthusiasm resulted in moments of orgasmic combustion."

"The Stones' influence on rock 'n' roll and their commentary on our world continue to have an impact 50 years later," said Meyer Shwarzstein, president of Brainstorm Media. "It's a great fit for Something to Talk About - our theatrical partners are very excited about it. I'm grateful to ABKCO and to DirecTV for working with us to make this happen."
