Paramount+ has announced that a new three-part docuseries “I Wanna Rock: The ’80s Metal Dream” will premiere on the streaming service on July 18 in the U.S. and Canada and internationally on July 19 in the U.K. and Australia, with further international markets to follow later this summer.
Members of Vixen, Winger, Skid Row, Twisted Sister and others will be featured in the series.
The series follows five young dreamers chasing stardom in the cutthroat world of ’80s metal. Some will succeed, some will fail, but each will make you see an entirely new side of the metal genre.
Episode one, entitled, “I Wanna Be Somebody,” follows five rockers who set out to make it in the world of hair spray and spandex as ’80s metal fever sweeps America.
Episode two, “Headed for Heartbreak,” follows the personal demons, sexism and Congress the rockers face as metal hits new heights.
Episode three, “Smells Like Change,” sees the rockers fighting for survival as country and grunge change musical tastes. Some will make it, some won’t . but all will be changed forever.
The series is produced by MTV Entertainment Studios in partnership with Gunpowder & Sky, directed and executive produced by Tyler Measom, and produced by Van Toffler.
