The story of Motown Records is to be told in a new big screen documentary titled ‘Hitsville’. The premier took place this week in Detroit  - the city that birthed the world famous soul music label 60 years ago (it was moved to Los Angeles in the early 1970’s but this documentary focuses on the early days).

The film includes rare behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with musicians, fans and stars including the label’s co-founder Berry Gordy, the great Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, Martha Reeves and The Supremes. The film is released with special screenings on September 30th, with worldwide general release on 4th October.
The city of Detroit is also hosting a whole weekend of celebrations honouring Mr. Gordy and Motown records this September, with a concert featuring live performances from Ne-Yo, The Temptations, Martha Reeves, Mary Wilson and members of the Four Tops.

A first look at the movie trailer is below...
