The Spice Girls will be baring all, so to speak, in a behind the scenes documentary about the girl band, which will premiere on Foxtel in December.
Airing at 7:30pm, December 16 on Fox 8, the documentary goes back to the beginnings of the girl group, which is considered by many as one of the most successful girl groups of all time.
For the first time ever the girls talk about the reasons why they became four, the impact it had on each of them and why eventually, after four years dominating the pop world, they decided to go their separate ways. Narrated by the girls themselves, Foxtel says this documentary will be recollections of the past, featuring archive footage from around the globe and how this promises to be one of the greatest reunions in music history.
Simon Fuller said: “This is the story of the greatest pop phenomenon since The Beatles, told in their own words. It will cover the highs and the lows, the laughter and the tears, from their pre-Spice Girls days and the forming of the group to the first taste of success, world domination and ultimately the break-up and the aftermath.”
Spice Girls: Giving You Everything is directed by Emmy award-winning Bob Smeaton, whose previous work includes The Beatles Anthology. On discussing the project and filming so far, Bob remarked “I said it should be the girls telling their story from inside the eye of the hurricane, so they are the only ones with a voice in the film. It’s great; they are looking at things with the benefit of hindsight and it makes for a very compelling story”.
