Bon Jovi is one of the '80s biggest success stories, and this new documentary series takes you behind the curtain of their meteoric rise to fame – as told by the band members in their own words. From their early years and humble beginnings playing the small clubs of New Jersey to becoming mega-stars selling out stadiums and arenas, this four-part series promises to leave no stone unturned in the incredible story of Bon Jovi. 

Directed by Gotham Chopra, Thank You, Goodnight: The Bon Jovi Story offers fans a unique opportunity to hear what really happened in those early years through exclusive interviews. Throughout the 4-part series you'll hear from the band’s current lineup, Jon Bon Jovi, Tico Torres, David Bryan, and Phil X, as well as the group’s former guitarist Richie Sambora and living musical legend Bruce Springsteen. There's also insight from famed music manager Doc McGee and even Jon Bon's wife, Dorothea Bongiovi.

Whether you're in America, the UK, or anywhere else in the world, you can be a part of this musical journey. All four parts of the series are now available to stream via Hulu in North America, as well as Disney+ internationally and Star+ in Latin America.
