Do you fancy yourself a bit of a mystery buff? Then you’re undoubtedly going to love Netflix’s new series, which tackles some of the most perplexing mysteries in music history.
Like any aspect of history, music has not been without its fare share of unanswered questions. Why, we’ve looked at a bunch of these in the past, and even with a couple of them since solved, others have left us scratching our heads in confusion.
Now, a new Netflix series is set to investigate some of these unexplained moments in musical history.
As Variety reports, ReMastered is a new docuseries that is set to arrive on Netflix on October 12th.
Created by Emmy award-winners Jeff and Michael Zimbalist, and featuring Irving Azoff and Stu Schreiberg as executive producers, this eight-part series hopes to deliver “discoveries and insights beyond what’s been previously reported”.
Kicking off with an episode that takes a closer look at the unresolved assassination attempt of Bob Marley back in 1976, viewers will also be given an insight into the murders of Sam Cooke and Run-DMC’s Jam Master Jay.
Other episodes will feature a closer look at Johnny Cash’s visit with Richard Nixon, the death of Chilean singer Victor Jara, the killing of The Miami Showband, the story of Robert Johnson, and will conclude with a journey to find the original writers of ‘The Lion Sleeps Tonight’.
“We’re thrilled to be releasing the first season of ReMastered with Netflix,” explained Jeff and Michael Zimbalist to Deadline. “In creating a slate of investigative stories about music’s impact on society, our hope is that audiences tune in not only because they know and love the artists, but also because they come to trust the journalism and promise for new, meaningful insight.”
“I’ve long thought I heard just about every music industry tale but this team’s investigations, led by the Zimbalists, delved deeper than anything I’ve seen,” added Irving Azoff.
ReMastered is set to premiere on October 12th.
