Showtime Announces The Weeknd’s Super Bowl Halftime Performance Will Be Transformed Into a Full-Length Documentary


Fans could not get enough of this year’s Super Bowl half time performance.

The streaming service, ‘Showtime’ has recently  announced a 90-minute feature documentary that will take fans behind-the-scenes of the making of the 2021 Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show, starring The Weeknd.

The documentary, titled The Show will be produced by Pepsi’s in-house content studio, along with Boardwalk Pictures.

Showtime describes this documentary as months of hard work “to pull off one of the biggest musical productions during one of the most challenging, unprecedented times.”

Nadia Hallgren will direct the documentary. Hallgren is also the woman behind Michelle Obama’s Netflix documentary, Becoming.

The documentary will give a behind the scenes look at the months of hard work that went into the Super Bowl halftime performance. The Show “promises to dive into the preparation process up that sees The Weeknd perform his earlier and latest hits.” 

According to Hypebeast, “Showtime said in an announcement that the film focuses on first-time Halftime show executive producer Jesse Collins and second-time executive producer Roc Nation en route “to pull off one of the biggest musical productions during one of the most challenging, unprecedented times.”

“This historic year with Jesse Collins as the first Black EP of the Halftime Show brought an opportunity to tell a new story. We get a window into the process of a diverse team of executives and creatives working at the highest level, in front of and behind the camera. It’s fun to see these masters at work while they also uplift others. I hope this can inspire people to pursue big dreams.” Hallgren says.

The documentary will also see appearances from those who help put all this together. La Mar Taylor, XO’s creative director, Es Devlin, the creative set designer, Lila Nikole, costume designer, Bruce Rodgers the set builder, producer Dionne Harmon and choreographer Charm La’Donna.

The Show will premiere later this year on Showtime.
