Beastie Boys' Mike Diamond and Adam Horovitz (Mike D and Ad Rock), in collaboration with filmmaker Spike Jonze, have secured a deal with Apple TV+ to be the streaming home of their new documentary Beastie Boys Story. The announcement was made on social media Wednesday morning. 

The doc, described by Mike D as "kind of a live documentary film", was filmed by Jonze primarily during a run of Beastie Boys shows at King’s Theater in Brooklyn last year. the film is set to be "an intimate, personal story of their band and 40 years of friendship." 

This is far from the first collaboration between the guys and Spike Jonze. Over the span of their career, the Academy Award nominated filmaker has directed six Beastie Boys videos, including "Sure Shot" and "Sabatoge", and together they will be releasing a photo book titled Beastie Boys on March 17th. 

A "special cut" of Beastie Boys Story will debut in select IMAX theaters April 3rd before the documentary hits Apple TV+ on April 24th.
