    Use somebody! Showtime has acquired Talihina Sky: The Story of Kings of Leon, the documentary about rock band Kings of Leon.

    The film, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival, begins at the Followill family reunion in Talihina, Oklahoma, where the band members -- brothers Nathan, Caleb and Jared as well as cousin Matthew Followill -- reconnect and unwind with their family. Sounds thrilling, right? At least it is an intimate look at the band, known for hits "Sex on Fire" and "Use Somebody."

    Band friend and first-time director Stephen C. Mitchell strings together a series of home videos, unedited interviews and behind-the-scenes footage of the band's rise from Pentecostal-reared musicians to Grammy-winning rock stars whose mothers who viewed rock 'n' roll as the work of the devil. Scandalous! We cannot wait to watch this rock doc.

    The doc will air Sunday, August 21st, at 10 PM.

    Will you be tuning in to watch the Kings of Leon documentary?
