BBC Entertainment to make documentary on Spice Girls

MUMBAI: BBC Entertainment and Simon Fuller's 19 have confirmed plans for a brand new Spice Girls documentary.

Spice Girls: Giving You Everything, to be screened in the UK on BBC One, tells the story of the band from the very beginning to the present day.

Despite the huge amount that has been spoken and written about them over the years, this will be the first time that the Spice Girls themselves would be telling the story of what it has been like inside the eye of the Girl Power storm.

Fuller said, "This is the story of the greatest pop phenomenon since The Beatles, told in their own words. It will cover the highs and the lows, the laughter and the tears, from their pre-Spice Girls days and the forming of the group to the first taste of success, world domination and ultimately the break-up and the aftermath."

BBC Entertainment Commissioning controller Elaine Bedell said, "I am really pleased that the Spice Girls have chosen to celebrate their reunion on BBC One. This unique documentary will provide exclusive access – and we're also delighted that they're showing such great support for BBC Children in Need."

Girl Power will hit UK screens as early as 2 November when BBC One has the world exclusive screening of the Headlines (Friendship Never Ends) video. This single is one of two new songs that the Spice Girls have recorded for their Greatest Hits album and the five-piece will perform the official song for this year's BBC Children in Need Appeal during the BBC One telethon on 16 November.

Spice Girls: Giving You Everything is directed by Emmy award-winning Bob Smeaton, whose previous work includes The Beatles Anthology. It is produced by Martin Smith and was commissioned by Elaine Bedell, Controller of BBC Entertainment Commissioning. Bob Massie is the Executive Producer for 19 Television.
