Behind The Music

“Behind The Music remains VH1’s signature series more than a dozen years after its debut.”

I had just finished the MTV special Bill Clinton – Rock ‘n Roll President when MTV’s sister network, VH1, asked my to help create a documentary music series. I was part of the team that named the series, and I produced and wrote the pilot episodes, Milli Vanilli and MC Hammer. The style and format I devised on those two shows continue to be the series’ signature to this day. Here are the ten episodes I wrote, produced and on some shows, directed.

Milli Vanilli                                   Madonna                                MC Hammer

Heart                                       Meat Loaf                                    Blondie

Cher                                   Teddy Pendergrass                            Bonnie Raitt
