An untitled HBO Entertainment documentary from Sony Pictures Television about the life and music of Elvis Presley is wrapping production this month and will debut on a yet-to-be announced date on the network.

Directed by Emmy and Grammy winner Thom Zimny, who has work on multiple Bruce Springsteen documentary and video projects, and written by Alan Light, the three-hour, two-film presentation takes the audience on a comprehensive journey from Presely’s childhood through his final Jungle Room recording sessions in 1976.

The project focuses on the man and his music, deconstructing why Presley’s sound and style were so revolutionary, exploring why they made him the world’s most legendary musical icon and revealing the cost of the massive success he achieved. The films were produced with the full participation of the Elvis Presley family estate and unprecedented access to Graceland archives facilitated by Authentic Brands Group.
