This month also brings one-of-a-kind real-life stories that reflect the human experience on the screen. Fans will immerse themselves into stories of complex characters that connect with everyone.

From Academy Award(R)-winner Barry Levinson comes “The Survivor” (4/27), an HBO Original from filmmaker Barry Levinson, and starring Ben Foster as the lead. Tells an incredible true story of Harry Haft, who, after being sent to Auschwitz, survives not only the inhumane persecution of the camp, but the gladiatorial boxing spectacles he is forced to perform with his fellow prisoners for the amusement of his captors.

From the producers of HBO’s critically acclaimed “The Wire,” comes “We Own This City,” (4/25) chronicling the rise and fall of the Baltimore Police Department’s Gun Trace Task Force and the corruption permeating an American city.

Part two of “The Way Down: God, Greed, And The Cult Of Gwen Shamblin” (4/28), directed by Primetime Emmy(R)-winning filmmaker Marina Zenovich, highlights the legacy of Remnant’s infamous leader, whose life came to a shocking end after a plane crash in May 2021.

HBO Original Documentary “Tony Hawk: Until the Wheels Fall Off” Debuts April 5

HBO Original Documentary Tony Hawk: Until The Wheels Fall Off Debuts April 5

Directed By Sam Jones And Executive Produced By Mark And Jay Duplass

The HBO Original documentary film TONY HAWK: UNTIL THE WHEELS FALL OFF, directed by Sam Jones and executive produced by Mark Duplass, Jay Duplass, and Mel Eslyn (HBO’s “The Lady and The Dale” and “Somebody Somewhere”) debuts TUESDAY, APRIL 5 (9:00-11:10 p.m. ET/PT) on HBO and will be available to stream on HBO Max.

Synopsis: Centering around intimate new interviews with Tony Hawk himself, the film is an all-encompassing look at the skateboarder’s life, legendary career, and relationship with the sport with which he’s been synonymous for decades. Hawk, a pioneer of modern vertical skating who is still pushing his limits at the age of 53, remains one of the most influential skateboarders of all time.

Featuring never-before-seen archival footage, the film chronicles Hawk’s meteoric rise from awkward teen outsider in the radical sport of the 1980s – where his father’s efforts to standardize and regulate the nascent competitions complicated his early success and relationships – to multiple X Games gold medalist, trick innovator, entrepreneur, and 12-time National Skateboard Association world champion. While the film celebrates Hawk’s single-minded pursuit of his passion, his relentless, and ultimately successful drive to master the elusive “900” and his refusal to bend to the reality of middle age, it also reveals the perils of fame and notoriety and the constant threat to his physical well-being.

Dynamically showcasing Hawk’s pure joy in skateboarding and his incredible tenacity over 40 years, the documentary probes the complex psyche of a man whose dogged determination and drive to succeed place him at the pinnacle of his sport, while celebrating a legacy that is still being written.

Featured interviews: Tony Hawk, filmmaker/skateboard pioneer Stacy Peralta, professional skateboarders Rodney Mullen, Mike McGill, Lance Mountain, Steve Caballero, Neil Blender, Andy MacDonald, Duane Peters, Sean Mortimer, Christian Hosoi and other legendary skateboarders speak to the ongoing challenges of continuing to do what they love while facing the increasing risks to aging bodies and minds.

Upping the visual spectacle is a soundtrack that resonates with the sounds of the 1970s, ‘80s and ‘90s, including tracks by The Clash, The Sex Pistols, Echo and The Bunnymen, Joy Division, Pavement, Oingo Boingo, The Replacements, XTC and New Order.

Credits: HBO Documentary Films presents in association with Duplass Brothers Productions and Beware Doll TONY HAWK: UNTIL THE WHEELS FALL OFF. Directed and produced by Sam Jones; executive producers, Mark Duplass, Mel Eslyn, Jay Duplass.


HBO Acquires TONY HAWK: UNTIL THE WHEELS FALL OFF, Executive Produced By Mark & Jay Duplass, Directed By Sam Jones

Film Chronicles The Life And Career Of The Skateboarding Legend

HBO has acquired TONY HAWK: UNTIL THE WHEELS FALL OFF, a feature documentary about the skateboarding legend from Mark and Jay Duplass’ Duplass Brothers Productions and director Sam Jones. The film will debut on HBO and will be available to stream on HBO Max in 2022.

The film is a wide-ranging, definitive look at Hawk’s life and iconic career, and his relationship with the sport with which he’s been synonymous for decades. Hawk, born in San Diego, Calif., is a pioneer of modern vertical skating and one of the most influential skateboarders of all time. The documentary features unprecedented access, never-before-seen footage, and interviews with Hawk, and prominent figures in the sport including Stacy Peralta, Rodney Mullen, Mike McGill, Lance Mountain, Steve Caballero, Neil Blender, Andy MacDonald, Duane Peters, Sean Mortimer, and Christian Hosoi.

“Sam has managed to make a film that somehow transcends the sport of skating and becomes a unique and very human portrait,” said Mark Duplass. “Can’t wait to share this thing with the world.”

“I’ve been enamored and fascinated with Tony Hawk ever since 1983 when I saw him at the skatepark,” said Jones. “To get to know him as a human being has been the great journey of this film, and to share my love of skating in this way is the culmination of my creative endeavors.”

TONY HAWK: UNTIL THE WHEELS FALL OFF is directed by Sam Jones and executive produced by Mark Duplass, Mel Eslyn and Jay Duplass.

Under their banner Duplass Brothers Productions (DBP), award-winning filmmakers Mark Duplass, Jay Duplass and Mel Eslyn create original projects for film, television, and digital media. In television, DBP is under a first-look deal with HBO which has yielded the hit series “Room 104,” “Togetherness,” and the HBO animated series “Animals,” which sold after premiering at Sundance in 2015. Currently, DBP is producing a series for HBO starring Bridget Everett.

DBP is also active in the docuseries television space, best known for producing Netflix’s “Wild Wild Country,” winner of the Emmy® Award for Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Series in 2018. Most recently, DBP produced the popular series “The Lady and the Dale” on HBO, which followed Elizabeth Carmichael, a larger-than-life entrepreneur who rose to prominence in the 1970’s with her promotion of a fuel-efficient, three-wheeled car known as The Dale. The team also produced Hulu’s “Sasquatch,” “On Tour With Asperger’s Are Us” for HBO, and “Evil Genius” for Netflix.

In film, Mark and Jay first gained recognition in the early 2000’s for writing, directing and producing several acclaimed independent and studio films, including “The Puffy Chair,” “Baghead,” “Cyrus,” and “Jeff, Who Lives at Home.” DBP’s numerous feature film credits in the decades following have included “The One I Love,” “Tangerine,” “Safety Not Guaranteed,” “Creep” (1 & 2), “The Overnight,” “Blue Jay,” “Horse Girl,” “Paddleton,” “Outside In,” “Duck Butter,” and “The Skeleton Twins.” DBP recently released Natalie Morales’ directorial debut “Language Lessons,” as well as the documentary “Not Going Quietly” about the life and work of the activist Ady Barkan.

Sam Jones is a director of documentary films and narrative television. He most recently directed an episode of “Ted Lasso” and has two documentary films in post production: “Running With Our Eyes Closed, A Film about Jason Isbell,” and “Tony Hawk: Until The Wheels Come Off.” Both films are being co-produced by the Duplass Brothers and Jones.

Jones is the creator and host of the documentary series “Off Camera with Sam Jones,” which had a 219 episode run on DirecTV’s Audience Network from 2013-2020. Jones is also an acclaimed commercial director and recently wrote and directed a series of commercials for OnePlus featuring Robert Downey Jr. He directed the Showtime series “Roadies,” created by Cameron Crowe, and also directed and produced the feature length Showtime documentary “Lost Songs: The Basement Tapes Continued,” a film that reexamines Bob Dylan’s “The Basement Tapes.” In 2002, Jones started his documentary career with “I Am Trying To Break Your Heart,” which chronicles beloved indie-rock band Wilco’s tumultuous recording of their acclaimed fourth album, “Yankee Hotel Foxtrot.” Rolling Stone named “I Am Trying To Break Your Heart” one of the best rock films of all time.

Jones began his career as a photographer and quickly gained acclaim for his seminal portraits of cultural icons. His work has appeared on the covers of Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone, Esquire, GQ, Time, and many others, and he has had several books published.

Jones lives in Los Angeles with his daughters and still loves to skateboard.
