Arguably the most salacious book of the year, Lizzy Goodman's Meet Me in the Bathroom delivered plenty of juice on the rivalries and revelries of New York's noughties rock scene.

Lovelace and Southern continue their relationship with Pulse, having worked with the film, TV and digital studio on "Shut Up and Play the Hits" and the Grammy-nominated Blur film "No Distance Left to Run".

Lizzy's book captures a moment and a feeling in a way that is immediate, visceral and evocative, and those are the qualities we want to bring to the screen.

She continued, "It's time to share with everyone else the full view of this weird, beautiful, dirty time capsule I've been inhabiting". "Beyond being a document of a vital and exciting period of creativity in one of the world's greatest cities, bringing "Meet Me in the Bathroom" to the screen is also an opportunity to explore the seismic changes that have occurred in the culture since the turn of the century". Variety reports the film will involve archive video and interviews with the biggest bands of the day, a la Lovelace and Southern's previous project Shut Up and Play the Hits, with 9/11 as a backdrop against an otherwise flourishing arts scene. Earlier this year the studio produced 10-part series about the history of Rock & Roll for British broadcaster Sky. Pulse said that Meet Me In The Bathroom will do away with the tropes and conventions and redefine the scope of the music documentary form. "With the market clearly gravitating towards landmark non-fiction docu-series, we feel Lizzy's brilliant book, combined with Will & Dylan's cinematic vision, will create a series that global audiences will cherish. With music so ingrained in our studios DNA and with our proven ability to use music as a lens to tell wonderful stories, Meet Me in the Bathroom felt like a natural project for us to truly get behind".
