SHOWTIME(R) DOCUMENTARY FILMS TO DEBUT "DAVID BOWIE FINDING FAME"

Documentary Chronicles The Late Musician's Formative Years Including Never-Before-Seen Interviews With Earliest Collaborators

Premieres Tonight, Friday, August 9 At 9 PM ET/PT

LOS ANGELES - August 9, 2019 - SHOWTIME Documentary Films will premiere DAVID BOWIE FINDING FAME from director Francis Whately (Rock 'n' Roll Guns for Hire: The Story of the Sidemen, DAVID BOWIE: FIVE YEARS) tonight, Friday, August 9 at 9 p.m ET/PT. The film chronicles five years of Bowie's early career, from the late 1960s through the on-stage death of Ziggy Stardust in 1973. As one of the most revered musical artists of his generation, little has been unveiled about Bowie's life before his commercial breakthrough or the creative ideas and techniques he pioneered that led to his stardom. Bowie's nascent artistic curiosity, along with his multifarious personas, enabled him to reinvent himself throughout an extraordinary career that continues to inspire and transcend many different musical genres and cultural movements today. To watch and share a first look clip from DAVID BOWIE FINDING FAME, go to:

As a five-time Grammy(R) winning artist, Bowie became a global icon through both his writing and performance of popular music and was honored with a Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2006. His career began with the launch of the 1969 hit song "Space Oddity," which was released at the time of the moon landing and gained popularity when used by the BBC in their coverage of the event. He went on to release his first No. 1 hit in the United States, "Fame," as well as several acclaimed albums including Ziggy Stardust, Young Americans, Low and Heroes and the unexpected massive commercial success, Let's Dance. He was also an accomplished actor, mime and art collector.

DAVID BOWIE FINDING FAME is a BBC Studios production that is directed and produced by Francis Whately. Phil Dolling serves as executive producer.
