HITSVILLE: THE MAKING OF MOTOWN will premiere on Showtime in the US on Saturday, August 24, at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Directed by Benjamin and Gabe Turner (Class of 92, I Am Bolt, One Direction: This Is Us), the film tells the remarkable story of the legendary Motown Records through new and exclusive interviews with the label’s visionary founder, Berry Gordy, and many of its superstar artists and creative figures, as well as rare performances and behind-the-scenes footage unearthed from Motown’s vaults and Gordy’s personal archives. Last week, Capitol Music Group presented Gordy with an Icon Award at Capitol Congress.

 

Several of the groundbreaking artists featured on the soundtrack were in attendance at the film’s star-studded Los Angeles premiere last week. View highlights from the premiere HERE  and a gallery of photos HERE.
