Dave Grohl and His Mom Virginia’s TV Show Gets Premiere Date, Watch the Trailer


Back in 2018, it was reported that Dave Grohl and his mother Virginia were developing a TV series based on Virginia Grohl’s 2017 book From Cradle to Stage. That show now has a premiere date: The first episode of From Cradle to Stage airs on Paramount+ on Thursday, May 6. Watch a teaser for the series below.

Guests on the series include Pharrell and his mother Dr. Carolyn Williams, Miranda and Bev Lambert, Brandi and Teresa Carlile, Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello and his mother Mary, and Rush’ Geddy Lee with his mother Mary Weinrib. The six-episode From Cradle to Stage—from Live Nation Productions, in association with Endeavor Content—is directed by Dave Grohl. 

The series was inspired by (and named after) Virgina Grohl’s book. “I believe that the relationship between a musician and their mother is so important because it’s the foundation of their understanding of love, which is surely every artist’s greatest muse,” Dave Grohl said of the series in a press release. “Having the opportunity to travel the country and tell the stories of these amazing women behind the curtain not only shed some light on the music that they inspired, but also made me appreciate the love that I was given from my own mother, my best friend. It goes without saying that we are all indebted to the women who have given us life. For without them, there would be no music.”

Grohl recently released a trailer for his upcoming movie about touring and vans called What Drives Us. Last week, he teamed up with Mick Jagger for their new single “Eazy Sleazy.”
