Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl is producing a documentary series with his mother Virginia Hanlon Grohl that will focus on mothers of big names in rock, from Adam Levine, Pharell and Tom Morello.

The show is based on Hanlon Grohl's book From Cradle Stage, published in 2017. In the book, Hanlon Grohl spoke with mothers of other famous musicians to compare stories, including Dr. Dre’s mother Verna Griffin, Janis Winehouse, Marianne Stipe and Donna Haim.

"I’m beyond excited to join in on the next step of my mother’s project to explore the stories of other musicians who were as fortunate as me, having been raised by such amazing women. Plus…I owe her one,” Dave Grohl said in a statement released on Thursday.

Variety magazine reported that Live Nations Productions was responsible for developing the show and that no television network had been attached to the project yet.

Last year, Grohl and his mom visited The Late Show With Stephen Colbert,  during the appearance of which Hanlon spilled the beans on her son's childhood.
