Defiant Ones, The (HBO 2017, Dr Dre, Jimmy Iovine)

Published

on

The Defiant Ones is a four-part documentary event, debuts Sunday 9 July (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT) on HBO, with parts 2, 3 and 4 debuting on successive nights, JULY 10, 11 and 12, at the same time.

Director Allen Hughes has made an unquestionably bold film about the unlikely but ultimately unbreakable bond of trust and friendship between Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine, two street-smart men from different worlds who have shaped many of the most exciting and extreme moments in recent pop culture. Allen Hughes filmed Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre with unfettered access over a three-year period in making The Defiant Ones

In addition to extensive interviews with Dre and Iovine, who speak frankly about their highs and lows, the show includes interviews with such music icons as Snoop Dogg, Bruce Springsteen, Gwen Stefani, Bono, David Geffen, Eminem, Nas, Stevie Nicks, Kendrick Lamar, Ice Cube, Jon Landau, Patti Smith, Lady Gaga, Doug Morris, Tom Petty, Trent Reznor, Diddy, Alonzo Williams and will.i.am.

The series also features never-before-seen footage from a multitude of recording and writing sessions with Eazy-E, JJ Fad, Stevie Nicks, N.W.A., Tom Petty, The D.O.C., Bruce Springsteen and U2, among others. Set amid many of the defining societal and cultural events of the past four decades, THE DEFIANT ONES tells the stories of two men – one black, one white – from different tough neighborhoods and their improbable partnership and surprising leading roles in a series of transformative events in contemporary culture.

This revealing, compelling and often-gritty story takes place in recording studios, in humble homes, in criminal courts and in the highest corridors of corporate power. Defiance is defined as “daring or bold resistance to authority or to any opposing force.”

This unique and inspiring tale shows how decades of defiance and determination helped Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre build a few empires, make a series of American Dreams come true and transform two street kids into global forces to be reckoned with, here and now. The result is a master class in how to work your way up from the bottom to beyond your wildest dreams.
