dumb: the story of big brother magazine

Recently selected to premiere at New York's Tribeca Film Festival, dumb: the story of big brother magazine will be available to a wider audience as part of hulu's documentary collection starting June 3rd. Big Brother magazine was first published in 1992 by Steve Rocco, one half of World Industries' founders. During a lull in the skateboarding industry, the ground breaking endeavour was an independent publication that abided by no rules - particular for its offbeat content and gimmicks. Presented was the edgy side of skateboarding that was missing from the commercially dominated atmosphere after the sport's boom in the 80's. Documenting the shenanigans behind the magazine that spawned MTV's infamous Jackass series, key people involved in the magazine and the sport make appearances in the film. The likes of Jeff Tremaine, Spike Jonze, Johnny Knoxville, Jason Lee, Bam Margera, Chad Muska, Rob Dyrdek, and Tony Hawk help tell the story and historical relevance through interviews and original footage.
