Jonas Brothers Documentary ‘Chasing Happiness’ Premiere Date Set on Amazon Prime Video

“Chasing Happiness,” a documentary about the newly reunited Jonas Brothers, will premiere Tuesday, June 4, exclusively on Amazon Prime Video worldwide.

The film promises never-before-seen footage of Nick, Joe, and Kevin Jonas, starting with their early days growing up in New Jersey in a family struggling to make ends meet. It follows them to their heights of stardom — and the events surrounding their 2013 breakup. “Chasing Happiness” also shows the brothers rebuilding their relationships as siblings and band mates, leading to their first new album since 2009.

In their heyday, the Jonas Brothers earned two No. 1 albums and sold out shows across three continents, selling over 17 million-plus albums with over 1 billion streams worldwide. The trio announced their reunion earlier this year with their hit single “Sucker,” which has topped 445 million global streams to date.

Last month, the group announced their first album since 2009, “Happiness Begins,” set to release June 7 via Republic Records. In addition, they announced details for their 40-city Happiness Begins Tour this summer and fall with special guests Bebe Rexha and Jordan McGraw. They’re also slated to be the musical guests on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend (May 11).

“Experiencing the brothers back together again is the news that everyone hoped for and we can’t wait to share this intimate and compelling documentary special with all of our customers,” Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios, said in a statement when the project was announced.

“Chasing Happiness” is from Philymack and Federal Films (a new division of Universal Music Group’s Republic Records) in association with UMG’s Polygram Entertainment and Amazon Studios. Executive producers are Phil McIntyre, John Varvatos, Monte Lipman and Dana Sano. The film’s producers are Reece Pearson, Steve Ecclesine and Grant MacDowell, and it’s directed by John Lloyd Taylor.

In announcing the documentary’s premiere date, Amazon released a video clip of the Jonas Brothers asking Alexa who her favorite member of the group is:
