Everything’s coming up roses for all Spice Girls fans. In case you haven’t heard, a new documentary series about the group’s unprecedented rise to the top has been in the works for a while. While four of the five members of the group, including Mel C, Mel B, Emma Bunton, and Geri Horner, were set to appear in the documentary, Victoria Beckham’s involvement in the project wasn’t confirmed. Recent reports have revealed that Beckham, or Posh Spice, has agreed to be a part of the documentary, making this documentary almost historic.
The ace designer had previously turned down the chance to join her bandmates for their sold-out stadium tour of the UK in 2019, leading fans to wonder if they would ever see all their favourite pop stars under the same roof since their hiatus announcement in 2000.
The docu-series will be helmed by the same team who were behind the Emmy award-winning series The Last Dance, based on the life of Michael Jordan.
In an interview on an Australian TV show, Mel B said, “The director and the whole concept of how that was shot and filmed are really, really, really, good. So we’ll be doing our own version with them.”
The London-based group was formed in 1994 and dominated charts for years to follow. Their debut single ‘Wannabe’ went number one in over 35 countries and catapulted them to the top, establishing them as a global sensation. They continued on with their success streak and sold over 100 million records and created an indelible legacy for themselves.
Aside from exclusive interviews and insights from the members, the docu-series will also reveal previously unheard anecdotes, like the one shared by Mel B in the same interview where she revealed that she wrote the rap for ‘Wannabe’ on the toilet as the other girls recorded their vocals!
Other production details are being kept under wraps for the moment but, if reports are to be believed, the documentary will air just ahead of The Spice Girls’ rumoured appearance at the 2023 Glastonbury Music Festival in England as headliners.
Are you excited to see the documentary?
