Plot Synopsis

REMASTERED is a series of eight documentary specials that investigate high-profile events affecting some of the most legendary names in music. A new episode, each featuring a different director, will be released each month, starting with:

"Who Shot the Sheriff" (Released: October 12, 2018; Director: Kief Davidson): In 1976, reggae icon Bob Marley survived an assassination attempt as rival political groups battled in Jamaica. But who exactly was responsible? This documentary includes interviews with reggae legend Jimmy Cliff and former Jamaican prime minister Edward Seaga.

Other documentaries include:

"Tricky Dick & The Man in Black" (November 2, 2018; Director: Sara Dosa): This documentary chronicles Johnny Cash's 1970 visit to the White House, where Cash's shifting ideals clashed with Richard Nixon's policies.

"Who Killed Jam Master Jay?" (December 7, 2018; Director: Brian Oakes): As a groundbreaking '80s rap act, Run-D.M.C. brought hip-hop to the mainstream. But the murder of the group's DJ, Jam Master Jay, remains a mystery.

"Massacre at the Stadium" (January 11, 2019; Director: Bent-Jorgen Perlmutt): For years, the murder of Chilean protest singer Victor Jara was blamed on an official in Pinochet's army. Now in exile, he tries to exonerate himself.

"The Two Killings of Sam Cooke" (February 8, 2019; Director: Kelly Duane de la Vega): Onstage, soul icon Sam Cooke was a dynamic star. Offstage, he was a vital voice for civil rights. And his tragic death still raises questions decades later. This investigation examines the mysterious shooting of Cooke, while featuring interviews with Smokey Robinson, Quincy Jones, Jim Brown, Billy Davis and more.

"The Miami Showband Massacre" (March 22, 2019; Director: Stuart Sender): Ambushed by Ulster loyalists, three members of the Miami Showband were killed in Northern Ireland in 1975. Was the crime linked to the government?

"Devil at the Crossroads": Robert Johnson was one of the most influential blues guitarists ever. Even before his early death, fans wondered if he'd made a pact with the Devil.

"The Lion's Share": A journalist seeking the author of "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" discovers the story of Solomon Linda and finds his family living in the slums of Soweto.
