Seven Bucks Productions To Produce CNN Original Series

New York, NY – CNN announced today three new Original Series launching in 2017, adding to its successful portfolio of high-quality, non-scripted programming. Soundtracks: Songs That Made History (working title), is an eight-part series produced by Seven Bucks Productions that will explore the music tied to iconic moments in history.

Every episode will cover a tragedy, triumph, or the start of a movement – and the music that came to define it. From the March on Washington to the riots at Stonewall, the moon landing to Hurricane Katrina – music has played an integral part in celebrating, criticizing, and amplifying these seismic events in our collective history. Soundtracks is produced by Show of Force and Seven Bucks Productions.

Read Dwayne Johnson and Dany Garcia’s announcements of the project:

EXCLUSIVE: Cool @SevenBucksProd project in the world of TV production & music. Through all my good times, hard times, failures and successes – music has always help shape and define every key moment in my life. As it does with all of us. And as is the case with our history. Every era, every revolution, every triumphant moment and every heartbreak has a distinct sound and song that can transport us right back to that moment in time. Our #SevenBucksProductions and @ShowOfForceFilm are proud to bring you a new @CNNOrigSeries called #Soundtracks: SONGS THAT MADE HISTORY. We’re taking you on an extraordinary journey through history using the music that defined our country’s biggest moments. We delivered the pilot to CNN, which included iconic artists from Billy Joel, to Lee Greenwood to Patti LaBelle who all sat with us to speak on how their music defined and inspired our country post 9/11. Incredibly moving and inspiring pilot and many tears shed (not me of course, I'm too tough to cry). CNN immediately ordered an entire series. This is a passion, heart and soul project for our Seven Bucks Productions and Show Of Force. I think we're making something very cool, high quality and special for you to enjoy. Coming soon. #SoundTracks #MusicDefinesHistory #MusicDefinesUsAll
