CNN to air special presentation of HBO documentary The Bee Gees
The Bee Gees: How Can You Mend a Broken Heart, directed by acclaimed filmmaker Frank Marshall (Seabiscuit, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), chronicles the triumphs and hurdles of brothers Barry, Maurice and Robin Gibb, otherwise known as the Bee Gees. The iconic trio, who found early fame in the 1960s, went on to write over 1,000 songs, including twenty #1 hits throughout their storied career. This film follows the Bee Gees’ meteoric rise as they rode the highs of fame and fortune, negotiated the vagaries of the ever-shifting music business and navigated the complexities of working so intimately alongside family.
The Bee Gees: How Can You Mend a Broken Heart was an official selection of the 2020 Telluride Film Festival. Frank Marshall also produces alongside Nigel Sinclair and Jeanne Elfant Festa, part of the award-winning team behind HBO’s The Apollo and George Harrison: Living in the Material World, and Mark Monroe. The film is a Polygram Entertainment presentation of a Kennedy/Marshall and White Horse Pictures production in association with Diamond Docs.
