Iggy Pop to Be Featured in Upcoming Epix Docuseries 'Punk'
The Sex Pistols' Johnny Rotten, The Ramones' Marky Ramone and more will also make appearances in the project centered on the punk movement.
Punk rock's rowdy, iconic movement will be revisited in the upcoming Epix docuseries Punk.
Produced by John Varvatos and directed by Jessie James Miller in partnership with Derik Murray's Network Entertainment, the project will focus on the music, art, fashion and overall misfit culture that defined the punk movement. It also will include original interviews with America’s punk pioneers and the U.K.’s most notorious bands, rare photos, archival film and videos, as well as a soundtrack of punk hits and misses.
"Exploring and reliving the history of punk has been an absolute labor of love for me," Varvatos said Monday in a press release announcing the series. "Punk's ability to transcend generations in its culture, music and style is a story that needs to be told. So…Hey Ho Let’s Go!!"
Johnny Rotten (Sex Pistols), Marky Ramone (Ramones), Debbie Harry and Chris Stein (Blondie), Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses) and more will be among the prominent artists featured in Punk. Iggy Pop, the "Godfather of Punk," has also joined the project as an executive producer and will be one of the artists featured.
The docuseries is set to bow March 11 at 10 p.m. ET on Epix.
