According to Lizzy Goodman's book Meet Me In The Bathroom: Rebirth and Rock & Roll in NYC 2001-2011, Ryan Adams was banned from hanging out with The Strokes because he was a bad influence on Albert Hammond Jr.'s heroin habit, but that's beside the point: It was a time of intrigue, of Killers vs. Strokes, of LCD Soundsystem.

Written by journalist Lizzy Goodman, Meet Me in the Bathroom details the rise of bands such as The Strokes, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, LCD Soundsystem and Interpol.

Directed by Will Lovelace and Dylan Southern, who previously helmed the LCD Soundsystem concert film, Shut Up and Play the Hits, the documentary will feature "first hand testimony, rare archive, and an era-defining soundtrack" with numerous sources featured in the book, according to Pitchfork. Goodman will executive produce, along with Pulse Films' Thomas Benski, Sam Bridger, and Brian Levy. Jaime Neely will produce, while Will Lovelace & Dylan Southern are attached to direct. "At the time it seemed like a total fantasy but it now feels like fate that the team behind Shut Up and Play the Hits, the show that gave me the idea to write this book in the first place, would be the ones to bring Meet Me in the Bathroom to the screen".

Will Lovelace and Dylan Southern added: "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". 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. The book is being turned into a four-part documentary mini-series. "With music so ingrained in our studios DNA and with our proven ability to use music as a lens to tell incredible stories, Meet Me in the Bathroom felt like a natural project for us to truly get behind".
