Credits: Written and performed by Nikki Glaser; directed by Hamish Hamilton; executive produced by David Jammu and Chris Convy.

HBO Original Documentary Series
4 Episodes
Rollout: Debuts with two episodes, followed by two episodes on May 21 at the same time.
Logline: STAX: SOULSVILLE U.S.A tells the story of an underdog record label comprised of Black and white collaborators who ushered in the groundbreaking, industry-altering soul music of Otis Redding, Isaac Hayes, Booker T. & the M.G.'s, The Staple Singers, Sam & Dave and many others that defined a generation. Driven by instinct and defying the notion that Black artists needed to be "made marketable," the Memphis-based label went from ultimate outsider to one of the most influential producers of Black music - finding its place inside the broader mainstream record industry. Stax became more than a record label; it transformed into a beacon of Black freedom. It is a quintessentially American story of an audacious group of individuals who dared to make their own music on their own terms creating an institution that has continued to help define our culture long after the label itself has gone. This is the story of Stax. As raw and honest as the sounds the label laid to vinyl.
Credits: HBO Documentary Films presents STAX: SOULSVILLE U.S.A., a Laylow Pictures Production and a White Horse Pictures Production in association with Concord Originals, Polygram Entertainment and Warner Music Entertainment. Directed by Jamila Wignot; produced by Jamila Wignot, Kara Elverson; executive produced by Ezra Edelman, Caroline Waterlow, Nigel Sinclair, Nicholas Ferrall, Scott Pascucci, Sophia Dilley, Michele Smith, Jody Gerson, David Blackman, Charlie Cohen and Ron Broitman.
