Synopsis: Music is a conversation that never ends, a call-and-response between fact and fiction. Netflix's original documentary series ReMastered investigates high-profile events affecting some of the most legendary names in music, presenting groundbreaking discoveries and insights beyond what's been previously reported. Helmed by the critically-acclaimed Zimbalist brothers and award-winning directors Kief Davidson, Barbara Kopple, Sara Dosa, Brian Oakes, Stuart Sender, B.J. Perlmutt, Kelly Duane de la Vega and Sam Cullman, each of the 8 tracks of ReMastered seeks to reveal answers about seminal events in the lives of artists such as Bob Marley, Johnny Cash, Jam Master Jay, Sam Cooke. With new takes on legends and headlines, ReMastered proves that history has more than one note.

ReMastered is a Netflix original documentary series produced by Triage Entertainment and All Rise Films. The series is created by Emmy and Peabody award-winners Jeff Zimbalist and Michael Zimbalist (The Two Escobars, Favela Rising, Nossa Chape, Pelé), who also serve as exec producers alongside Irving Azoff and Stu Schreiberg.

The 8-track series will launch monthly on Netflix, with the following rollout:

"Who Shot the Sheriff?" - Launches October 12
Directed by: Kief Davidson (Open Heart, The Ivory Games)
The violent political suppression of the roots reggae movement in Jamaica told through an investigation into Jamaican politics and the CIA's involvement in the mysterious shooting of Bob Marley.

"Tricky Dick and the Man in Black" - Launches November 2018
Directed by: Barbara Kopple and Sara Dosa (American Dream, Harlan County USA)
Concerned by a rising rock-n-roll influence on a growing liberal fanbase, President Nixon invited Johnny Cash to the White House to solidify his base in the traditionally more conservative genre of country music. What Cash did instead was subversive and surprised everyone. Cash's political values had begun to take a new shape after his famed prison concerts at Folsom and San Quentin and this night marked the climax of his political transformation.

"Who Killed Jam Master Jay?" - Launches in December 2018
Directed by: Brian Oakes (Jim: The James Foley story, Abstract)
Run DMC's Jam Master Jay was shot and killed in a Jamaica, Queens recording studio in 2002. Despite six witnesses present at the murder, no one has ever been convicted. This track steps into the murky world of hip hop in Hollis, Queens to understand Jay's loyalties to his roots and investigate this iconic whodunnit.

"Massacre at the Stadium" - Launches in January 2019
Directed by: B.J. Perlmutt (Havana Motor Club)
Known as Chile's Bob Dylan, Victor Jara was a fearless political singer who led the historic Nueva Cancion folk movement in Chile during the CIA-backed Pinochet dictatorship. Pinochet's regime eventually would torture and kill Jara - along with 3000 others - in the National Stadium, for writing a song about the covert killings. The Chilean army official who was convicted of pulling the trigger and ending Jara's life is living in hiding in Florida. He is convinced he can prove his innocence...and that's where this story begins.

"The Two Killings of Sam Cooke" - Launches in February 2019
Directed by: Kelly Duane de la Vega (Better This World)
Sam Cooke was one of the most influential black musicians of the Civil Rights Movement and made a huge impact on the rights of black musicians, frustrating the white establishment. An investigation into the circumstances and controversy surrounding his murder uncovers a deeper question -- did the record industry try to suppress the story of Cooke's death? And to what extent did they suppress the politics of his life?

"The Miami Showband Massacre" - Launches in March 2019
Directed by: Stuart Sender (Harmony: A New Way of Looking at Our World)
In 1974, while on the way home from a gig, the apolitical rock group, The Miami Showband, fell into the crosshairs of a Protestant unionist paramilitary group that planted explosives on their bus when it was stopped at a fake checkpoint. The explosives detonated prematurely and the paramilitary group machine-gunned down the band. But bassist Peter Travers survived. This film tracks Travers' efforts and recent discoveries to tie the bombing and subsequent attacks to direct orders given by the British government.

"Devil at the Crossroads" - Launches in April 2019
Directed by: Brian Oakes (Jim: The James Foley story, Abstract)
The short, mysterious life of the most enduring legend of blues music, Robert Johnson, is one of elaborate myth. Johnson was said to have made a deal with the Devil at a crossroads in rural Mississippi, and many believe that everything the impassioned blues icon touched was cursed. This film examines more worldly interpretations of these myths and how they might explain the depth and beauty of later blues musicians who were heavily influenced by Johnson.

"Lion's Share" - Launches in May 2019
Directed by: Sam Cullman (Art and Craft)
This film tracks South African journalist Rian Malan's journey to find the original writers of the legendary song "The Lion Sleeps Tonight," which earned more than 15 million dollars in royalties for American groups like The Tokens, Pete Seeger and the Weavers, as well as Disney. Malan discovers that the original writer, a black South African named Solomon Linda, whose family currently lives in poverty in the slums of Sweto, didn't receive royalties. Driven by his own guilt that his uncle was one of the architects of apartheid, Malan goes after businessmen in the US music industry to force them to pay their fair share to Linda's family.
