Two new documentaries profiling iconic rock bands New Order and Duran Duran will premiere Friday, December 27 on Showtime.

Part concert, part documentary, New Order: Decades, follows the band’s preparations in the re-staging of their acclaimed collaboration, So It Goes, with the artist Liam Gillick and the 12-piece synthesizer orchestra that captured the headlines during Manchester International Festival 2017.

Duran Duran: There’s Something You Should Know offers a candid look back through the extraordinary career of one of the world’s most beloved groups, with previously unseen footage and intimate conversations with the original line-up: singer Simon Le Bon, bassist John Taylor, drummer Roger Taylor and keyboardist Nick Rhodes.

The doc highlights the defining moments of their four decades-long journey and provides a glimpse into what’s next for Duran Duran.
