HBO is set to release a new four-part documentary series called The Defiant Ones, the story of how Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine‘s career trajectories have brought them to where they are today. The first episode will air on Sunday, July 9 at 6pm PDT.

Set amid many of the defining events of the past four decades, The Defiant Ones tells the stories of Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre — one the son of a Brooklyn longshoreman, the other straight out of Compton — and their improbable partnership and surprising leading roles in a series of transformative events in contemporary culture. From director Allen Hughes (Menace II Society) this revealing, compelling and often-gritty story takes place in recording studios, in humble homes and massive mansions, in criminal courts and in the highest corridors of corporate power.
