About The Defiant Ones
The Defiant Ones is a four-part documentary event from director Allen Hughes (Menace II Society), an unquestionably bold film about the unlikely but ultimately unbreakable bond of trust and friendship between two street-smart men from different worlds who have shaped many of the most exciting and extreme moments in recent pop culture.
Set amid many of the defining events of the past four decades, The Defiant Ones tells the stories of Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre – one the son of a Brooklyn longshoreman, the other straight out of Compton – and their improbable partnership and surprising leading roles in a series of transformative events in contemporary culture. This revealing, compelling and often-gritty story takes place in recording studios, in humble homes to the heights of success, in criminal courts and the underbelly of the highest corridors of corporate power. A unique and inspiring tale, it's unflinchingly told with the help of many of the most notable artists and figures of our time, reflecting Hughes’ unfettered access to Iovine, Dre and the remarkable cast of prominent figures who have been a part of their success story. This epic look at America shows how you can consistently defy conventional wisdom and even logic, and still win big.
In addition to extensive interviews with Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine, who speak frankly about their highs and lows and were filmed over a three-year period, the show includes interviews with such music icons as Bono, David Geffen, Eminem, Nas, Ice Cube, Gwen Stefani, Jon Landau, Tom Petty, Trent Reznor, Snoop Dogg, Bruce Springsteen and will.i.am. The series also features never-before-seen footage from a multitude of recording and writing sessions with Eazy-E, JJ Fad, Stevie Nicks, N.W.A., Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen and U2, among others.
