Virginia Hanlon Grohl, mother of Foo Fighters leader Dave Grohl, is developing a docu-series based on her 2017 book, From Cradle to Stage, featuring interviews with fellow music moms. For the original project, Virginia spoke with numerous mothers of famous musicians, including Marianne Stipe (mother of R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe), Donna Haim (the Haim sisters), Janis Winehouse (Amy Winehouse), Verna Griffin (Dr. Dre) and Hester Diamond (the Beastie Boys’ Mike D). The series will utilize excerpts from interviews with the mothers of Pharrell, Adam Levine, Tom Morello and more alongside Virginia Grohl’s personal stories and family photos.
