Live Nation Productions is Live Nation’s film and television production division, devoted to telling groundbreaking, musically-driven stories for audiences worldwide. Launched in 2016 and run by Heather Parry, the production arm extends the renowned Live Nation brand’s breadth of assets into the development and production of innovative, culturally impactful films, television and documentaries in both scripted and unscripted forms.
Most recently, Live Nation Productions produced the highly-anticipated documentary Gaga: Five Foot Two, an intimate and unfettered portrait of a year in the life of Lady Gaga, which premiered at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival before becoming available on Netflix in 190 countries and won Best Music Film at the 2018 NME Awards. In the film, Emmy-nominated filmmaker Chris Moukarbel (Banksy Does New York) pulls back the curtain to introduce the woman behind the performer.
Prior to this, the department produced Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop: A Bad Boy Story which chronicles Sean “Diddy” Combs as he tries to bring his family of artists back together for the first time since the tragic loss of their beloved friend and one of the most influential rappers of all time, the Notorious B.I.G. After premiering at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival the film became exclusively available on Apple Music, where it hit No. 1 on the iTunes Documentary charts across the Globe. The film then went on to win the Hollywood Documentary Award at the 2017 Hollywood Film Awards.

Nominated for two Critics’ Choice Documentary Awards, including Best Documentary, the film chronicled the American rock band’s return to Paris following the tragic terrorist attacks that took place during their concert in November 2015. Additionally, Live Nation Productions financed Justin Timberlake + the Tennessee Kids, a feature-length concert documentary directed by Jonathan Demme and released on Netflix.
