If you were a fan of Baywatch, and all its iconic red-swimsuited glory, you’re in luck. A documentary film is in production!
While Baywatch is no stranger to the big-screen — with a Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron-led film landing in 2017 — it is about to get the documentary treatment, with many of the original cast from the now-classic television show slated to appear.
The project is being headed by filmmaking duo Matthew Felker and Brian Corso, whose first collaborative documentary, Public Figure, is available to stream now on Amazon Prime. An already star-studded cast have been assembled for sit-down interviews, according to the Hollywood Reporter, and the documentary will take an in-depth look at the wider cultural impact that the show had.
Stars David Hasselhoff, Eggert, David Chokachi, Alexandra Paul, Erika Eleniak, Gena Lee Nolin Hulse, Jason Simmons and Jeremy Jackson are confirmed appear, with Pamela Anderson, Carmen Electra and Michael Bergin’s involvement still in negotiation. An August or September start date is expected for production.
Director and producer Matthew Felker told The Hollywood Reporter, “I was coming of age when Baywatch was at its peak, so the Baywatch history is, in a lot of ways, also my history. When you grow up at the same time as something as big as Baywatch, you can draw a lot of your own experiences and memories and really see a lot of parallels between the show and myself. I even became an actual open-water lifeguard because of the show.”
He added, “Baywatch was more than just a show, it was a cultural event and it influenced so much of the tastes of myself and my generation, from what we thought was hot or to what we thought was not. Baywatch is still relevant today, but the most intriguing thing about the history of the show is that it got made and that it became so popular and lasted this long!”
No release date for Baywatch: The Documentary has been given at this time.
