Showtime has announced a 90-minute feature documentary that takes fans behind-the-scenes of the making of The Weeknd’s Super Bowl Halftime Show. The full-length documentary, titled The Show is produced by Pepsi’s own in-house content studio, alongside Boardwalk Pictures.

The documentary, directed by Nadia Hallgren, the woman behind Michelle Obama’s Netflix documentary, Becoming, will look at the months of work that went into the Super Bowl LV halftime performance. The Show promises to dive into the preparation process up that sees The Weeknd perform his earlier and latest hits.

Showtime said in an announcement that the film focuses on first-time Halftime show executive producer Jesse Collins and second-time executive producer Roc Nation en route “to pull off one of the biggest musical productions during one of the most challenging, unprecedented times.”

Hallgren adds, “This historic year with Jesse Collins as the first Black EP of the Halftime Show brought an opportunity to tell a new story. We get a window into the process of a diverse team of executives and creatives working at the highest level, in front of and behind the camera. It’s fun to see these masters at work while they also uplift others. I hope this can inspire people to pursue big dreams.”

The documentary will also see appearances from La Mar Taylor, XO’s creative director, Es Devlin, the creative set designer, Lila Nikole, costume designer, Bruce Rodgers the set builder, producer Dionne Harmon and choreographer Charm La’Donna.

The Show is expected to premiere later this year on Showtime.

In the meantime, check out the teaser trailer for The Show above.
