Submarine Entertainment has secured world distribution rights to Streetlight Harmonies, a new documentary chronicling the early days of doo-wop.

Produced by Tango Entertainment, Hatcreek Films, and Footnote Films, the Brent Wilson-directed doc examines one of the earliest opportunities for African-American musicians to cross over into the mainstream music scene. The innovations in music during the doo-wop era would go on to influence major singing groups for generations to come, producing many now-legendary hits.

The doc features interviews with musicians from doo-wop’s early days, and those influenced by it, including Brian Wilson (Beach Boys), Lance Bass (NSYNC), Brian McKnight, Jimmy Merchant (The Teenagers), La La Brooks (The Crystals), Charlie Thomas (Drifters), and Al Jardine (Beach Boys).

“Street Light Harmonies is an inspiring reminder that music is far bigger than any one hit song and how it connects us all,” said Tango Entertainment producer Tim Headington in a statement. “It’s a timeless conversation connecting our musical past to our future.”
