Hulu announced it has acquired the documentary “Thank You, Goodnight: The Bon Jovi Story.”
There have been numerous Bon Jovi documentaries over the years including When We Were Beautiful, which premiered at the 2009 Tribeca Film Festival. However, the four-part “Thank You, Goodnight: The Bon Jovi Story” will mark the first-ever docuseries in the band’s history with full cooperation from all past and present members of Bon Jovi.
A description of the docuseries reads (per Hulu): “As thrilling as the story of a once-in-a-lifetime talent is, it is even more rare that a legend like Jon Bon Jovi lets the world into his most vulnerable moments while he’s still living them. Forty years of personal videos, unreleased early demos, original lyrics and never-before-seen photos that chronicle the journey from Jersey Shore clubs to the biggest stages on the planet. The series relives the triumphs and setbacks, greatest hits, biggest disappointments and most public moments of friction.”
Gotham Chopra (“Kobe Bryant’s Muse,” “Man in the Arena,” “Tom vs. Time”) directed the documentary; it is produced by ‘Religion of Sports’, the company founded by Chopra, and Michael Strahan and Tom Brady. “Thank You, Goodnight: The Bon Jovi Story” will premiere on Friday, April 26 in the U.S. and will be followed internationally on Disney+ and Star+ in Latin America.
