'Meet Me in the Bathroom' Is Becoming a Documentary Series

Meet Me In The Bathroom

Meet Me In The Bathroom

Pulse films announced Thursday that it will be adapting Lizzy Goodman's oral history Meet Me in the Bathroom: Rebirth and Rock & Roll in NYC 2001-2011 into a four-hour documentary miniseries. The acclaimed, 600-page book featured firsthand accounts from scene members like Ryan Adams, The Strokes, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and the aforementioned LCD Soundsystem, and was hailed not only for documenting personal, often salacious details about the artists' relationships, but examining the effect of cultural changes like the rise of the internet on the music industry. Filmmakers promise to dispense with the "expected tropes and conventions of music documentaries" in order to "create a work of true cinematic scale that will redefine the scope of the music documentary form". Pulse Films' Thomas Benski, Sam Bridger, and Brian Levy will Executive Produce alongside writer Lizzy Goodman. Jaime Neely will produce, while Will Lovelace & Dylan Southern are attached to direct.

Meet Me in the Bathroom, the book, was released this past May.

"Lizzy's book captures a moment and a feeling in a way that is immediate, visceral and evocative, and those are the qualities we want to bring to the screen", the pair said in a statement. It's time to share with everyone else the full view of this weird, beautiful, dirty time capsule I've been inhabiting. Variety reports the film will involve archive video and interviews with the biggest bands of the day, a la Lovelace and Southern's previous project Shut Up and Play the Hits, with 9/11 as a backdrop against an otherwise flourishing arts scene.

"At various points during the six long years it took to bring Meet Me in the Bathroom to life, it occurred to me what an incredible documentary this would make", said Goodman. "With music so ingrained in our studios DNA and with our proven ability to use music as a lens to tell fantastic stories, Meet Me in the Bathroom felt like a natural project for us to truly get behind".
