The Grateful Dead formed in 1965, which means we are fast approaching the 50th anniversary of the storied jam band. To celebrate the occasion, Martin Scorsese will executive produce a Grateful Dead documentary directed by Amir Bar-Lev (The Tillman Story). Scorsese explained the appeal of the project and the unique stature of the band:
“The Grateful Dead were more than just a band. They were their own planet, populated by millions of devoted fans. I’m very happy that this picture is being made and proud to be involved.”
