Corrections & clarifications: A previous version of this report included Hulu’s “Wu-Tang: An American Saga,” which is a scripted series.
We're nearing the end of 2019, and the year's landscape of music documentaries has been an embarrassment of riches.
Premiering tonight is HBO's "The Apollo," which explores the history of Harlem's iconic theater and features such stars as Patti LaBelle, Pharrell Williams, Smokey Robinson and Jamie Foxx.
Documentaries from earlier this year have allowed music fans to dive into Netflix and Hulu's competing Fyre Fest documentaries, learn more about myriad music legends such as Leonard Cohen and the Wu-Tang Clan, and, more seriously, reevaluate the legacies of Michael Jackson and R. Kelly via the hard-hitting profiles of the two artists.
And no conversation about the year in music docs is complete without a mention of 'Homecoming," Beyoncé's concert film that allowed fans around the world to experience her 2018 Coachella headlining performances in rich detail.
Read on for a list of the year's most noteworthy music documentaries, some of which are available now and others that are upcoming.
