BBC America to Premiere ‘Bruce Springsteen: In His Own Words’

BBC America will premiere Bruce Springsteen: In His Own Words on November 26th.

Attention, Springsteen fans! BBC America is thrilled to announce the acquisition of lauded documentary Bruce Springsteen: In His Own Words. Directed by award-winning filmmaker Nigel Cole, the 70-minute documentary, with limited interruptions, explores key moments in Bruce Springsteen‘s life that provided the influence for some of his most acclaimed songs across his extensive career. Bruce Springsteen: In His Own Words premieres November 26th at 10/9c on BBC America.

Very excited about this, there’s still so much I need to learn about The Boss.

Throughout the documentary, Bruce will explore his early years growing up in Freehold, New Jersey, recounting the seminal moments that fueled his relentless drive to become a musician, his years as a bar band king in Asbury Park, the rise of the E Street Band and his eventual ascendancy to the top of Rock’s hierarchy.

It’ll be exciting to see all the old interview footage, too. They’re framing it as a full look at his career, and as the documentary implies, “in his own words.”

Bruce’s conversation will be supported by rare and previously unseen archive of Bruce at various stages throughout his life, provided in consultation with the Grammy and Emmy award-winning filmmaker Thom Zimny, who has collaborated with Bruce for the past 18 years.
