Kings of Leon Documentary: Showtime Premiere!

Back in April, The Kings of Leon premiered their documentary Talihina Sky for a few lucky people during the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival – now’s your chance to watch it in the comfort of your own home!

The docu kicks off at the annual Followill family reunion in the back woods of Talihina, Oklahoma, where the boys return to their roots and unwind with their family. First-time director and Followill friend Stephen C. Mitchell weaves personal home videos, unedited interviews and behind-the-scenes footage of the band’s journey from their small-town beginnings — spent in poverty and touring the Bible Belt with their father, a Pentecostal evangelist minister, and their devout mother — to living the rock star dream.

Fine out more about the Grammy Award-winning band in Talihina Sky: The Story of Kings of Leon, which will premiere on Showtime on Sunday, August 21 at 10 PM ET/PT.
