Trouble No More, a feature-length presentation starring Bob Dylan, that accompanied the deluxe edition of his outstanding 2017 box set of the same name, will air Monday, Feb. 26 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, exclusively on Cinemax.

Directed  by Jennifer Lebeau, Trouble No More spotlights Dylan’s passionate, faith-based music, featuring electrifying, digitally restored footage from concerts in Toronto and Buffalo in late-April and early-May 1980, which is interspersed with fiery sermons written by Luc Sante and delivered by actor Michael Shannon (HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, Oscar® nominee for Nocturnal Animals and Revolutionary Road).

Dylan’s controversial “gospel” period began with the release of the 1979 album Slow Train Coming, which was followed in 1980 by Saved and ended with Shot of Love in 1981. TROUBLE NO MORE showcases one of Dylan’s most exciting bands, consisting of Muscle Shoals veteran Spooner Oldham and Terry Young on keyboards, Fred Tackett on guitar, Tim Drummond on bass, Jim Keltner on drums and backing singers Clydie King, Gwen Evans, Mona Lisa Young, Regina McCrary and Mary Elizabeth Bridges.
