EPIX(R) PRESENTS FEATURE DOCUMENTARY "LAUREL CANYON"

Alison Ellwood-Helmed Music Documentary From The Kennedy/Marshall Company, Amblin Television, Warner Music Group and Jigsaw Productions Set for Late 2019 Premiere

New York, NY - January 17, 2019 - EPIX has greenlit Laurel Canyon, a feature-length documentary that will pull back the curtain on a mythical world and provide an up-close look at the lives of the musicians who inhabited it. Through a wealth of rare and newly unearthed footage and audio recordings, the documentary will feature an intimate portrait of the artists who created a music revolution that would change popular culture. Alison Ellwood (History of the Eagles) will direct the feature-length film, which will premiere in late 2019 on EPIX.

Celebrating the music of Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt, The Eagles, The Mamas And The Papas, Carole King, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, James Taylor, The Doors, Frank Zappa and more, the film will be uniquely immersive and experiential, taking us back in time to a place where a rustic canyon in the heart of Los Angeles became a musical petri dish.

Said Michael Wright, President, EPIX, "We're thrilled to be working with Alison and the entire filmmaking team on one of the most dynamic chapters in music history... and as an unapologetic fan of the subject matter, I'm honored that this documentary will have a home on EPIX."

Said director Alison Ellwood, "Though a little too young to have experienced the Laurel Canyon music scene first hand, the songs created in that magical place made it onto the radio and traveled over 6000 miles to where I was growing up in the UK. The music is the soundtrack of my youth; each song evokes memories becoming timeless in my consciousness. I am thrilled to be a part of this talented team assembled to tell this incredible story."

"Having personally lived through this musical period of time, I'm incredibly excited to be involved in telling this story, especially given the amazing team we've assembled to make what we intend to be the definitive documentary on the Laurel Canyon scene," said executive producer Frank Marshall.

Said Craig Kallman, Chairman & CEO, Atlantic Records, "In Laurel Canyon, all the stars aligned to kindle a creative community unlike any other in modern musical history. Brought together during a cultural sea change, these artists inspired themselves and each other to make transcendent music that remains as vibrant and relevant today as it was a half century ago. The Warner Music family of labels - Atlantic, Elektra, and Warner Bros. - were fortunate to have been part of this extraordinary moment, recording many of the artists at the center of the Laurel Canyon scene. We're thrilled to be partners in this long-overdue documentary about an incredible time and place."

Laurel Canyon is executive produced by Frank Marshall, The Kennedy/Marshall Company; Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey, Amblin Television; Craig Kallman and Mark Pinkus, Warner Music Group; Alex Gibney, Stacey Offman and Richard Perello, Jigsaw Productions; and Jeff Pollack. The film is produced by Ryan Suffern, The Kennedy/Marshall Company, and Erin Edeiken, Jigsaw Productions.
