Bee Gees doc announced for Blu-ray

Film is currently streaming on HBO Max

The Bee Gees: How Can You Mend a Broken Heart, the Emmy Award-winning HBO documentary, is heading to Blu-ray and DVD on November 16th via the Warner Archive Collection. The documentary has amassed more than 5.5 million viewers to date since it launched on HBO Max earlier this summer. Both physical editions will include deleted scenes not available on the digital version.

The Bee Gees: How Can You Mend a Broken Heart, directed by acclaimed filmmaker Frank Marshall (Arachnophobia, Eight Below) chronicles the triumphs and hurdles of brothers Barry, Maurice and Robin Gibb, otherwise known as the Bee Gees. The film was an official selection of the 2020 Telluride Film Festival. Frank Marshall also produces alongside Nigel Sinclair and Jeanne Elfant Festa, part of the award-winning team behind HBO’s The Apollo and George Harrison: Living in the Material World, and Mark Monroe. The film is a Polygram Entertainment presentation of a Kennedy/Marshall and White Horse Pictures production in association with Diamond Docs.

The Bee Gees, who found early fame in the 1960s, went on to write over 1,000 songs, including 20 No. 1 hits throughout their storied career. The film follows the iconic trio’s meteoric rise as they rode the highs of fame and fortune, negotiated the vagaries of the ever-shifting music business and navigated the complexities of working so intimately alongside family.

The critically acclaimed documentary is an intimate exploration of the Gibb story, featuring revealing interviews with oldest brother Barry and archival interviews with the late twin brothers Robin and Maurice. The film features a wealth of never-before-seen archival footage of recording sessions, concert performances, television appearances and home videos, as well as interviews with musicians Eric Clapton, Noel Gallagher, Nick Jonas, Chris Martin, Justin Timberlake, music producer Mark Ronson, singer Lulu, record company executive Bill Oakes, among others.
