A documentary about Stone Temple Pilots is going forward for Showtime.
Kent Sevener, Showtime executive VP of content acquisition & business & legal affairs, promised “a compelling story” in an interview with Broadcasting & Cable, explaining that “not a lot has been done about the band.”
One-time “The X Factor” contestant Jeff Gutt made his live debut as STP’s new vocalist during a SiriusXM special event in November at the Troubadour nightclub in Los Angeles.
STP had been without a vocalist since November 2015, when Chester Bennington — who joined the group in early 2013 — departed to spend more time with his main band LINKIN PARK. Bennington committed suicide last July.
Scott Weiland, who reunited with the group in 2010 after an eight-year hiatus but was dismissed in 2013, died in December 2015 of a drug overdose while on a solo tour.
STP’s new, self-titled album will be released on March 18.
