The Foo Fighters frontman is joining forces with his mother Virginia and Live Nation Productions to bring her book to life.

Dave Grohl and his mother Virginia Hanlon Grohl are set for a documentary series based on her 2017 book, From Cradle To Stage: Stories from the Mothers Who Rocked and Raised Rock Stars.

According to Variety, the Foo Fighters frontman is teaming up with Live Nation Productions as one of the executive producers for the project, which will see his mother's interviews brought to life.

Heather Parry, Live Nation Productions President of Production, Film & Television, said: “At Live Nation Productions, we are proud to help artist’s share their stories in the most authentic way possible.

She added: “Virginia’s book aligns perfectly with that vision, highlighting an array of incredibly strong women, sharing true and unique perspectives of the mothers who raised some of our most celebrated rock stars.

"I am a Foo Fighters fan and have known Dave Grohl since my days at MTV, so it’s incredibly gratifying to be partnering with Virginia and Endeavor Content to help bring this project to life.”
