‘Chicago’ Documentary Acquired by FilmRise And CNN Films


FilmRise has acquired the worldwide distribution rights to director Peter Pardini’s Now More Than Ever: The History of Chicago. Stateside fans of the seminal rock band can catch the documentary on New Year’s Day 2017, as CNN Films has the U.S. broadcast distribution rights.

The New Year’s Day premiere of Now More Than Ever: The History of Chicago comes with limited commercial interruption. The band also serve as producers of the documentary which charts the genesis of the group all through its present status. The picture premiered this year at the Sedona International Film Festival, where it received the Best of the Fest audience choice award.

Now More Than Ever: The History of Chicago is the quintessential account of one band’s monumental success and influence within American music,” said Danny Fisher, CEO of FilmRise. “We’re thrilled to partner with CNN Films to bring this film to Chicago’s millions of admirers throughout the world.”

Chicago’s illustrious career includes two Grammy awards, an induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and 21 top ten singles (including “If You Leave Me Now” and “Saturday in the Park”).

“The legendary melodies of the iconic supergroup Chicago have become a part of Americana.  As the band enters its 50th year of longevity, we hope families and music lovers of all ages enjoy our New Year’s Day premiere,” said Amy Entelis, executive vice president of talent and content development for CNN Worldwide.  “Cheers to our partners at FilmRise for making this special tribute possible.”

Personally, I’m also excited for FilmRise’s acquisition of Chicago: The Terry Kath Experience. Kath, who passed in 1978, was a celebrated guitarist and also the lead singer behind the popular Chicago tune “Colour My World.”
