Meet Me In The Bathroom To Be Turned Into Documentary Series

Pulse Films has optioned the rights to Lizzy Goodman's non-fiction book 'Meet Me In The Bathroom: Rebirth And Rock & Roll In NYC 2001-2011' - which was published by Dey Street Books earlier this year - with plans to adapt it as a four-part documentary series.

Meet Me in the Bathroom includes interviews with the Strokes, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the National, Ryan Adams, LCD Soundsystem, Moby and many, many other staples of the 2000s NY scene.

Now, thanks to Pulse Films, who previously produced Nick Cave's One More Time with Feeling, Arcade Fire's The Reflektor Tapes and Beyonce's Lemonade, the book will become a docuseries consisting of four one-hour segments directed by Will Lovelace and Dylan Southern. Jaime Neely will produce, while Will Lovelace & Dylan Southern are attached to direct. "Beyond being a document of a vital and exciting period of creativity in one of the world's greatest cities, bringing "Meet Me in the Bathroom" to the screen is also an opportunity to explore the seismic changes that have occurred in the culture since the turn of the century".

Meet Me in the Bathroom, the book, was released this past May. It's time to share with everyone else the full view of this weird, beautiful, dirty time capsule I've been inhabiting.

"Meet Me in the Bathroom is a brilliant property that we are thrilled to be bringing to life in this ambitious way", said Thomas Benski, CEO of Pulse Films.

With 9/11 as a backdrop, the documentary series is billed as a story about the transformation of the city in the first decade of the 2000s as seen through the prism of the bands coming through at the time. "I couldn't be more excited to work with Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace, as well as the entire Pulse Films team. With music so ingrained in our studios DNA and with our proven ability to use music as a lens to tell awesome stories, Meet Me in the Bathroom felt like a natural project for us to truly get behind".
