Real Talk with Jimmy Iovine

The Defiant Ones—not to be confused with the 1958 Tony Curtis and Sidney Poitier film of the same name—is HBO’s definitive account of the unlikely and wildly successful partnership of Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre. How exactly did the Brooklyn-born studio whiz who mixed Bruce Springsteen’s Born To Run and Meatloaf’s Bat Out of Hell end up linking with the Compton-born DJ/producer from World Class Wreckin Cru and N.W.A? How did they change the face of popular music by ushering in the rise of Death Row Records, The Chronic, Snoop Dogg, Aftermath Entertainment, Eminem, and 50 Cent? And how the hell did they go on to build a billion-dollar brand with the launch of Beats By Dre and Apple Music.
