Said Varvatos, "Exploring and reliving the history of punk has been an absolute labor of love for me. Punk's ability to transcend generations in its culture, music, and style is a story that needs to be told. So... Hey Ho Let's Go!!"

"EPIX is thrilled to partner with John Varvatos, Iggy Pop, Derik Murray and the entire team on Punk," said Michael Wright, President, EPIX. "Their rare insights, passion and unmatched talent have made this project an unforgettable journey, and we can't wait to see this story unfold in the way that only this team can tell it."
