The Weeknd may have made blowing the “roof” off Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium look easy at his Super Bowl LV Halftime Show in February (as we reported here), but – as evidenced by a forthcoming documentary – putting together a show of that magnitude is anything but.
First announced nearly 7 months ago, Showtime dropped the first official trailer Wednesday (September 2) for the Nadia Hallgren-directed ‘The Show’ – a 90-minute “unique glimpse into the passion, work, and cinematic mindset that went into the creation” of this year’s Super Bowl Halftime.
Speaking on the venture, The Weeknd (born Abel Tesfaye) released an official statement saying:
“[‘The Show’] extends the narrative for fans and viewers who like to get lost in how the historic show we all grow up watching is built.”
Chockfull of never-before-seen interview and behind-the-scenes footage, the “making of” spectacle will premiere on September 24. Ahead of its kickoff, run inside to see the gripping trailer.
