Street Gang is an upcoming Sesame Street documentary based on the book of the same name by Michael Davis. Much like the book, the documentary will follow the story of the creation of Sesame Street and the Children's Television Workshop.

The documentary will be directed by Marilyn Agrelo (originally announced to be Marah Strauch) and jointly produced by Macrocosm Entertainment and Citizen Skull Productions. Funding for the production was partially raised via crowd-sourcing among fans on Indiegogo, offering customized Sesame Street perks.

The film, originally pegged for a 2017 release,[1] is currently set for release in 2019.

In Fall 2018, the U.S. rights to the film were acquired by HBO and the worldwide rights by Focus Features.[2]
