Last year, The Other One: The Long, Strange Trip of Bob Weir premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival. Until now, very little has been said about the documentary, but reports indicate that Netflix will pick up the film.

According to reports, the film will be available come Friday, May 22nd. A quote in Variety from Netflix VP of original documentary and comedy Lisa Nishimura said, “[Director] Mike Fleiss was given unprecedented access to create an intimate and compelling film about one of the most prolific, respected and beloved musicians of our time… We are proud to bring Bob’s story to his fans around the world on the eve of the Dead’s final shows at Soldier Field in Chicago.”

Fleiss commented about the film, saying “We certainly unearthed a lot of buried treasure from the Grateful Dead archive while making this film… With Netflix, we have found the perfect global partner to tell the fascinating life story of Bob Weir set against the backdrop of America’s greatest rock band.”

The film itself has been critically acclaimed, winning the Audience Award at the San Francisco International Film Festival. With credits like producer Marc Weingarten (“God Bless Ozzy Osbourne”) and exec producers Martin Hilton (“The Bachelor”) and Justin Kreutzmann (“In the Attic with Pete Townshend & Friends”), we’re certainly excited to see The Other One come next month!
