Book about 2000s NYC indie rock scene to be adapted into docu-series

ABC/Randy HolmesMeet Me in the Bathroom, a book written about the 2000s indie rock scene in New York City, is being adapted into a four-part docu-series by production company Pulse Films.

Written by journalist Lizzy Goodman, Meet Me in the Bathroom details the rise of bands such as The Strokes, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, LCD Soundsystem and Interpol. The series will be directed by Will Lovelace and Dylan Southern, who also directed the LCD documentary Shut Up and Play the Hits.

"Lizzy's book captures a moment and a feeling in a way that is immediate, visceral and evocative, and those are the qualities we want to bring to the screen," Lovelace and Southern tell Variety in a statement. "Beyond being a document of a vital and exciting period of creativity in one of the world's greatest cities, bringing Meet Me in the Bathroom to the screen is also an opportunity to explore the seismic changes that have occurred in the culture since the turn of the century."

Meet Me in the Bathroom, the book, was released this past May.
