Breaking The Band (Reelz) – Premieres 10th June
A docu-series where in each episode it focuses on a famous musical group and looks into how and why they split up.
Starting off with giving a brief history of the band and how the split was announced, the programme then goes into the back story. Where it reveals the events that culminated over a period to time, leading to the break up of the group.
Along with showing some archival footage and some rather shoddy dramatic reenactments, the programme interviews old friends the band, a psychologist, and former employees. Where they talk about the reasons that caused fractions in the group and how they grew over time.
As music documentaries go it not the most intriguing of programmes. And with it having no input from anyone from the actual band, it’s just covering stuff that was already known and doesn’t offer anything new.
