What's the story?

THANK YOU AND SORRY is a comedy-driven documentary series about Grammy-award singer Jack Antonoff as he tours with his band, Bleachers. From New York to Chicago, he talks about the physical and emotional challenges that come with traveling and performing live music. Cameras follow as he shares anecdotes during pre and post-show gatherings, radio interviews, and press conferences, while bandmates Mikey Heart, Sean Hutchinson, Jon Shiffman, and Evan Smith offer their thoughts about what it's like working with him. Each episode also features the band performing one of their songs at a live venue. Learning how to work with people, satisfy audiences, and finding a manager that he can work with isn't always easy, but Jack's committed to be true to his music throughout the journey.  

Is it any good?

Half comedy, half documentary, each installment of this series offers an endearing blend of reality concert moments and semi-scripted funny sequences. Adding to the show's charm is Antonoff's deadpan-but-quirky personality, as well cameo appearances by folks like Colin QuinnRosie PerezSara Bareilles, and Lena Dunham

It's a promotional vehicle for the band, and chances are that it will appeal more to its fans given the amount of time it dedicates to showcasing their music. Nonetheless, thanks to the characters featured here, the unique nature of the series makes for some entertaining viewing moments. 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about documentaries. What makes something a documentary versus a reality show? Can something really be considered a documentary when there are scripted moments or actors performing in it? 

  • Lots of musicians talk about how hard it is to go on tour. Why do they do it? Is it just for the promotional benefits, or is it something more?
