The Weeknd’s Super Bowl halftime performance will be chronicled in the new documentary The Show, out September 24th on Showtime.
“The halftime show is the most-watched 12 minutes in television,” executive producer Jesse Collins says in the trailer above. “You just don’t want anything to go wrong.” The clip shows the massive undertaking of the production, from rehearsals to the moment the Weeknd stepped onstage on February 7th — which 100 million people tuned in to see.
“This documentary is a unique glimpse into the passion, work, and cinematic mindset that went into the creation of the show,” Abel Tesfaye said in a statement. “It extends the narrative for fans and viewers who like to get lost in how the historic show we all grow up watching is built.”
Last month, the Weeknd returned with the single “Take My Breath,” his follow-up to 2020’s After Hours. Last week, he joined Nas on Belly’s “Die for It.“
