The show is scheduled to air on July 3 on ITV1. How ‘new’ this new documentary actually is remains to be seen and at the moment details are scarce.
This is what website Digital Spy are saying about the show…
ITV is producing a one-off documentary about hit Abba musical Mamma Mia! to coincide with the release of a new movie production.
The documentary will include interviews with the film’s stars, who include Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth and Julie Walters, as well as clips and behind-the-scenes footage.
Abba members Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson will also feature in Abba: The Mamma Mia! Story along with those involved in successful stage productions.
"With extracts from the theatre show and exclusive access to the auditions of a new version of the show in Scandinavia, this is a musical feast for Abba lovers", said ITV.
The show is scheduled for UK viewers on July 3 on ITV1. It is available to non UK audiences on July 4 on ITV’s Catch up service.
