Get ready to relive The Weeknd's Super Bowl Halftime Show in a new format. Instead of simply watching the artist's performance from an audience member's perspective, Showtime is giving fans the opportunity to go behind the scenes of the production in a new documentary film titled The Show, which shows The Weeknd as he prepared for the event, as well as the directors, producers, choreographers and dancers who helped with bringing the show to life.
The first official trailer for the documentary film, released on Wednesday (Sept. 1), features scenes of The Weeknd in recorded dance rehearsals, a virtual practice session with more than 42 participants watching on a Zoom call, and clips from a run-through held at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla. Footage of the crew members setting up the stadium, timing the pyrotechnics to the live performance, and members of the wardrobe department are also scattered throughout the trailer.
One of the men in the clip who worked on the event is heard saying, "The halftime show is the most watched 12 minutes in television." Jana Fleishman, evp of strategy and communications at Roc Nation, added, "This is our second year working on the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show."
