The true stories of legendary pop performers.

Vol. 1
The Hitmakers: Pay a visit to Aldon Music, where countless pop music careers were launched. Rare footage and interviews with songwriters Gerry Goffin, Burt Bacharach, Carole King and Cynthia Weil capture the charged atmosphere of this era when pop was young! See unforgettable performance clips of groups like The Righteous Brothers and The Ronettes that showcase the unforgettable tunes of "Teen Pan Alley."

Dionne Warwick: One of the biggest stars to come out of "The Hit Factory," Dionne Warwick dominated the charts for a decade singing the timeless songs of Burt Bacharach and Hal David. THE SONGMAKERS chronicles Dionne's life and career through rare performance clips, classic recordings, childhood photos and interviews with everyone from her sons Damon & David to Elton John and Dick Clark.

Vol. 2
Words & Music by Leiber & Stoller: More unlikely founding fathers of rock would be hard to imagine, but Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller's influence can be heard in virtually every chord. The Songmakers follows every twist and turn of their prolific, 50 year partnership, that included writing material for The King - Elvis Presley.

Burt Bacharach: In an era when artists increasingly wrote their own material, Burt Bacharach and Hal David kept the Teen Pan Alley tradition alive by writing infectious songs of undeniable brilliance. The Songmakers goes beyond the music for a multi-faceted look at their lives.

Bobby Darin: The Songmakers uses rare footage - including never before seen home movies of a Las Vegas performance - and interviews with friends, co-stars and family to tell the complete story of Bobby Darin , the multi-talented performer who was one of the first stars to emerge from "The Hit Factory."
