Lizzy Goodman's 'Meet Me In The Bathroom' Set For Rock Doc Treatment
Well-known music journalist Lizzy Goodman's acclaimed "dirty time capsule" of the early-aughts' New York indie rock scene, Meet Me In The Bathroom, will be adapted for a new documentary series, Billboard reports.
Spotlighting the rises, occasional falls, and storied lifecycles of bands like LCD Soundsystem, the Strokes, and Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the book has garnered critical acclaim for its unflinching fly-on-the-wall view of this exciting and notably prolific era of music.
Noted directors Will Lovelace and Dylan Southern — best known for their work on LCD Soundsystem's intended swan song, Shut Up and Play The Hits, and the GRAMMY-nominated Blur documentary No Distance Left To Run — have been tapped to helm the four-hour documentary series based on Goodman's book.
"At various points during the six long years it took to bring Meet Me In The Bathroom to life, it occurred to me what an incredible documentary this would make," says Goodman of the announcement. "At the time it seemed like a total fantasy but it now feels like fate that the team behind Shut Up And Play The Hits, the show that gave me the idea to write this book in the first place, would be the ones to bring Meet Me In The Bathroom to the screen."
