NEW YORK — The Foo Fighters are headed to the small screen.
The rock band said Thursday, May 15, it will show the making of its new album in a series on HBO. The series will feature the group recording one song in eight cities, including Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and Seattle.
The show and album will premiere in the fall.
Bandleader Dave Grohl will direct the series. He received critical acclaim last year for his directorial debut, the music documentary “Sound City.”
