Grohl, who recently released new Foo Fighters album Medicine at Midnight, and announced the publication of his first book, has released the first trailer for the show, which is based on Virginia's 2017 book of the same name.
In her book, Virginia interviewed other fellow mothers of famous musicians to see why their offspring became music stars.
As well as Brandi Carlile and her mum Teresa, Pharrell Williams and his mum Carolyn, Tom Morello and his mum Mary, the show will also feature Rush's Geddy Lee and his mum Mary.
Dave Grohl directed the series and he said, "I believe that the relationship between a musician and their mother is so important because it's the foundation of their understanding of love, which is surely every artist’s greatest muse.
"Having the opportunity to travel the country and tell the stories of these amazing women behind the curtain not only shed some light on the music that they inspired, but also made me appreciate the love that I was given from my own mother, my best friend.
"It goes without saying that we are all indebted to the women who have given us life. For without them, there would be no music."
The first episode of the series will air in the US on Paramount on May 6th.
The first trailer for Grohl’s new documentary What Drives Us, a film that explores bands, like Nirvana, who began their careers touring in vans has also been released, and the singer and drummer also collaborated with Mick Jagger on lockdown song Eazy Sleazy, which has had a mixed reaction.
