Showtime Sets Premiere Dates for The Go-Go’s and John Belushi Documentaries

Network also announces “Love Fraud” will debut in August

Showtime announced the premiere dates for three documentary films that will debut this summer, including the Sundance film “The Go-Go’s.”

“The Go-Go’s,” which had its premiere at the annual film festival earlier this year, will debut on Showtime on Aug. 1 at 9 p.m. “Love Fraud,” which follows the search for con-man Richard Scott Smith, will premiere Aug. 30 at 9 p.m. “Belushi,” about the late comedian/actor John Belushi, will bow Sept. 27 at 9 p.m.

Below is Showtime’s descriptions for the three films:

THE GO-GO’S Director Allison Ellwood’s documentary feature, which premiered at Sundance earlier this year, chronicles the first all-female band to play its own instruments, write its own songs and soar to No. 1 on the album charts. The Go-Go’s made history. Featuring candid testimonies, Ellwood’s film charts the meteoric rise to fame of a band born of the L.A. punk scene that not only captured but created a zeitgeist.

LOVE FRAUD Directors Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady’s four-part series follows a con-man on the run and the dynamic women determined to put him behind bars, and takes viewers on a bizarre, engrossing ride through the twisted mind of a criminal and the chaos he leaves in his wake.

BELUSHI Using previously unheard audiotapes recorded shortly after John Belushi’s death, director R.J. Cutler’s documentary feature examines the too-short life of the once-in-a-generation talent who captured the hearts and funny bones of devoted audiences.
