Stormzy will be interviewed by Louis Theroux for a new BBC series. ‘The Louis Theroux Interviews’ is a six-part documentary series that will feature the documentary filmmaker in conversation with some of the biggest stars in entertainment.
The first episode will centre on Stormzy, with Theroux accompanying him on tour and at home “for an in-depth and personally revealing encounter” with the British rapper. Each of the remaining episodes will feature a different guest, who will be revealed later.
Speaking about the series, Theroux said: “I’m so excited to be embarking on this new series – something very different to the kind of TV I normally make. This will be a chance to meet and spend time with people I admire, getting to know them, having long form and revealing conversations, with honesty, emotion, and humour.”
“To be kicking off with the genius that is Stormzy is proper pinch-me stuff. I can’t wait to get going.”

Clare Sillery, the BBC’s head of documentary, history and religion commissioning, added: “Louis is one of the most distinctive voices in broadcasting and his unique interview style, warmth and curiosity help bring out incredible life stories from those he meets.
“I am pleased to see him returning with a series that I’m sure will deliver insightful and memorable conversations and bring viewers closer to some of the most exciting names who are shaping culture in Britain today and across the world.”
On BBC Two and BBC iPlayer, the Louis Theroux Interviews will be available. A release date has not yet been set. Stormzy said earlier this month that his third studio album will be out this year. ‘Heavy Is The Head,’ his last album, was released in December 2019.
