The Rolling Stones will celebrate 60 years as a band this summer — and to mark the occasion, they'll be sharing a documentary series called My Life as a Rolling Stone.

The four-part series premieres on August 7 via Epix, with each episode presenting a character study on one of the band's core four members: Keith Richards, Mick Jagger, Ronnie Wood and the late Charlie Watts.

It was co-directed by Oliver Murray and Clare Travenor, who have previously worked on Stones-related projects — the former on 2019 documentary The Quiet One on the band's co-founding bassist Bill Wyman, and the later helming a 2010 TV special tied to the release of Richards's autobiography.

According to the network, My Life as a Rolling Stone will document "how the Rolling Stones created the blueprint for every budding rock band, and grew from young blues-loving hopefuls to a globally recognized cultural brand."

"Compelling music docuseries have become a pillar of Epix's slate of premium original programming, and My Life as a Rolling Stone is a perfect addition to that mix," streamer president Michael Wright added in a statement. "This distinctive documentary captures the raw and organic energy that defines the Rolling Stones, and tells the gripping, epic story of their journey. I am excited for viewers to experience this legendary band as few ever have before."

The Stones are currently amid a European tour, which will see them back in action in Milan tonight after Jagger announced that he's recovered from COVID-19.
