Now That’s What I call Music is a brand new documentary that has just been commissioned by ITV to view later this summer. Now That’s What I Call Music, of course, is a series of music releases that highlight specific years. This documentary is on the history of popular music and Now’s journey to bring it to the people.
The story of the Now That’s What I Call Music compilation series is to be made into a one-hour documentary.
ITV has commissioned Reef Television to produce the programme which will explore the history of music from and how the compilation series grew to sell more than 100 million records in the UK.
Celebrities and artists will be sharing their favourite memories prompted by a Now album on the show which will be transmitted this summer.
The Story Of Now was ordered by ITV’s commissioning editor for comedy entertainment Claire Zolkwer and is the first commission for Reef’s new head of specialist factual Ben Weston, who joined the indie at the end of last year.
Reef Television has negotiated exclusive access to archive, artists and those behind the brand from EMI.
Zolkwer said: “Every Now album evokes particular points in people’s lives. This show will take our viewers back through the soundtrack of their lives and help them relive many special moments.”
Personally, I’m a fan of the 70’s and 80’s music. I’ll be watching for the documentary, how about you? What are your favorite “hit” years? Will you be watching too?
