Showtime announced the premiere dates for the documentary films “The Go-Go’s,” “Love Fraud” and “Belushi.” The Go-Go’s will premiere Saturday, August 1; Love Fraud on Sunday, August 30 and Belushi on Sunday, September 27.
Director Allison Ellwood’s documentary feature, The Go-Go’s which premiered at Sundance earlier this year, chronicles the first all-female band to play its own instruments, write its own songs and soar to No. 1 on the album charts. The Go-Go’s made history. Featuring candid testimonies, Ellwood’s film charts the meteoric rise to fame of a band born of the L.A. punk scene that not only captured but created a zeitgeist. The Go-Go’s will premiere Saturday, August 1 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
Love Fraud, directors Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady’s four-part series, follows a con-man on the run and the dynamic women determined to put him behind bars, and takes viewers on a bizarre, engrossing ride through the twisted mind of a criminal and the chaos he leaves in his wake. Love Fraud will premiere on Sunday, August 30 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
Using previously unheard audiotapes recorded shortly after John Belushi’s death, director R.J. Cutler’s documentary feature titled Belushi, examines the too-short life of the once-in-a-generation talent who captured the hearts and funny bones of devoted audiences. Belushi will premiere Sunday, September 27 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
