If you grew up dancing to the music of Posh, Scary, Sporty, Ginger and Baby, then this is the best news you will receive all week. (And let’s face it, we really need some!)
The new project titled, Girl Powered: The Spice Girls, is set to air in 2021, in honor of the band’s 25th year anniversary since the release of the hit single, ‘Wannabe.’ The movie will feature archival footage of the band, along with revealing interviews that will bring to light their road to success in becoming one of the biggest names in pop culture.
The group, which comprises of Melanie Brown, Melanie Chisholm, Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell, and Victoria Beckham, was a huge hit in the 90s before they decided to split in 1999. Since then, the band has reunited two times for a comeback tour, first in 2007 and then in 2019, where Beckham was missing.
“The idea of using the story of the supremely popular and mould-breaking Spice Girls to make a multi-layered social history series was too good to pass up,” Pomeroy, the Commissioning Editor of Documentaries said. “The Spice Girls mirrored and influenced a generation of women and now, nearly 30 years since their formation, their story sheds light on the coming of age of modern feminism in ways we can fully appreciate for the first time.”
