"The Year of Pharrell" Coming To REVOLT

Documentary reflecting on mogul's incredible year premieres January 26th only on REVOLT

HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Jan. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- On the heels of its first-ever original documentary, "Wale: I am From," REVOLT announced their next documentary project, "The Year of Pharrell." Premiering in the wake of the 56th Annual Grammy Awards, "The Year of Pharrell" will feature the immensely private music mogul sitting down for one of his most in-depth conversations to-date. In the hour-long special, Pharrell Williams reminisces about his remarkable success in 2013, his reputation as one of the hottest producers in music and his Academy Award-nominated song "Happy," from the hit film Despicable Me 2.

REVOLT was granted unprecedented access to the elusive hit-maker as he closed out his stellar 2013 with multiple Grammy nominations and announced his signing with Columbia Records. "The Year of Pharrell" celebrates music's brightest star with featured interviews from a number of his famous peers (including Rick Ross and Pusha T) weighing in on his unparalleled talent and his contributions to the music industry.

"We are honored that Pharrell allowed REVOLT to join him as he reflects on the biggest year in his career," said Val Boreland, executive vice president of programming and strategy. "With his Oscar and Grammy nominations, he has proven himself to be the one of the leading trendsetters in the music industry. Fans will love having such a rare, intimate, behind-the-scenes glimpse of Pharrell's genius at work."  

"Pharrell had an amazing year, arguably his most successful one since the start of his larger-than-life career," said Rahman Dukes, vice president of programming and news. "From his work with Jay-Z to Daft Punk to Robin Thicke in 2013, this REVOLT special is a celebration highlighting a true visionary who's consistently been at the forefront of shaping the culture."

REVOLT will televise the journey behind Pharrell's remarkable year on January 26th. Visit www.revolt.tv to confirm local channel listings. Follow REVOLT TV in social media for continued artist interviews, music news, and programming updates.
