Iron Maiden: Breaking the Band – Special – 8/7c on Reelz – Documentary – TV-PG

Formed in the late 1970s and racking up more than a hundred million album sales, British band Iron Maiden have been heavy metal’s undisputed kings for nearly 40 years. Loud, proud and famed for their spectacular album covers and live shows, their meteoric rise from the pubs and clubs of London, England to the stadiums of the world, was borne out of the uncompromising musical vision of founder and bass player Steve Harris. But that same leadership and vision ignited long-festering tensions – especially when the band signed up flamboyant lead vocalist Bruce Dickinson. Not only did he constantly push Steve aside to take center stage, he had plenty of his own musical ideas too. As the band grew exhausted touring the world performing its massive shows relentlessly, these tensions loomed larger and large and ultimately shook Iron Maiden to its very foundations in the early 1990s.

Judas Priest: Breaking the Band – Special – 9/8c on Reelz – Documentary – TV-PG

Judas Priest has sold over 50 million records worldwide making them one of the most successful rock groups of all time.

But with two lead guitarists vying for control of the group, life threatening addiction issues, an accusation of murder and a secret kept for decades with the potential to destroy the band, after 20 years the group was at breaking point. Nothing was heard from them in 5 years but they made a controversial comeback and are still going strong today. But the longevity came at a price – only one of the original members has remained true to the band. Judas Priest: Breaking the Band reveals the story of the legendary band.

What was supposed to be a quick stop turns into a labyrinth of family secrets and lies Tommy thought were long buried. One step leads to another and Tommy quickly finds himself in Chicago’s drug game, inserting himself between the city’s two biggest crews. In a city divided by race, Tommy straddles the line, ultimately becoming the lynchpin that not only unites them – but holds the POWER to watch them crumble. As the first season unfolds at breakneck speed, Tommy uses his outsider status to his advantage, breaking all the local rules and rewriting them on his quest to become the biggest drug dealer in Chicago.
