Lynyrd Skynyrd ‘Street Survivors’ doc heading to home video

Available on Blu-ray, DVD and digital on June 30th

Street Survivors: The True Story Of The Lynyrd Skynyrd Plane Crash will be released on Blu-ray, DVD and digital on June 30th via MVD Entertainment. The film was scripted and directed by Jared Cohn (Devil’s Revenge, Devil’s Domain), produced by Brian Perera and co-produced by Tim Yasui for Cleopatra Entertainment.

The biopic recreates the story about the ill-fated flight through the eyes of former Lynyrd Skynyrd drummer Artimus Pyle (who narrates the film), who not only survived the plane crash that claimed the life of the band’s founder and front man Ronnie Van Zant, amongst others, but who also physically pulled the remaining survivors out of the plane wreckage before staggering towards the nearest farmhouse in rural Louisiana to seek help. Pyle also contributes original music to the film’s soundtrack.

“This film’s story – MY story – is not just about the plane crash but also about my personal relationship with the genius that was Ronnie Van Zant – whom I loved like a brother and still miss to this day,” Pyle says of the project.

Cleopatra Entertainment completed an international festival run followed by a domestic theatrical run, which included personal appearances by Pyle, who introduced the film and participated in Q&As with the audience. Pyle also performed a live music concert with this band that featured the hit songs by Lynyrd Skynyrd.

The Blu-ray will include the DVD and an official CD soundtrack. The soundtrack will also be available as a standalone CD.
