September 30, 2013 - JOURNEY'S DON'T STOP BELIEVIN': EVERYMAN'S JOURNEY PREMIERES TONIGHT ON PBS' INDEPENDENT LENS



The critically acclaimed documentary Don't Stop Believin': Everyman's Journey makes its television premiere tonight, September 30, at 10pm/9c on most PBS member stations. Check local listings here.

Don't Stop Believin': Everyman's Journey follows the real life rock 'n' roll fairy tale of Filipino singer Arnel Pineda, who Neal Schon plucked from YouTube and brought to America to audition to be the new frontman for the iconic American rock band Journey.

Journey is one of the most popular American groups of all time, creating some of the best-known songs in modern music, including rock staples such as "Wheel in the Sky," "Any Way You Want It," "Open Arms," "Separate Ways" and seminal anthem "Don't Stop Believin'."

In this Cinderella story for the ages, Pineda, having overcome a lifetime's worth of hardships, must now navigate the immense pressures of replacing a legendary singer and joining a world-renowned band on their most extensive world tour in years.

What happened next is the stuff dreams are made of as Pineda not only becomes a full member of Journey, but an inspiration to proud Filipino Americans and fans in his home country.

Written and directed by Ramona S. Diaz, Don't Stop Believin': Everyman's Journey was released theatrically and on VOD platforms in March 2013, following wildly successful Tribeca and Silverdocs festival screenings.

Since its formation in 1973 in San Francisco, Journey has earned 19 Top 40 singles, 25 gold and platinum albums, and received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame . The band's Greatest Hits album is certified 15 times platinum, bringing Journey into the elite club of Diamond-certified album holders. The band was awarded the prestigious "Legend of Live Award" at the 2011 Billboard Touring Awards in honor of the band's significant and lasting contributions to live music and the touring business, and in acknowledgement of their commitment to the fans and the art of performing live. 2011 also marked the 30th anniversary of the band's seminal anthem, "Don't Stop Believin'," honored as the top-selling digital classic rock song in history by Nielsen.
