Liz’s larger than life personality is headed to the big screen. Warner Bros. and HBO have announced that they are developing a documentary about the chart-topping star’s rise to fame and her unbreakable confidence. Initial reports suggest that this film will debut on HBO Max in the fall.
“Growing up I never dreamed I’d get to experience all of the things I’ve accomplished in my life, and I’m just getting started. I’m so excited I get to share and relive my journey with my fans and HBO Max,” Lizzo shared in a statement obtained by VIBE.
“From Cuz I Love You to my dramatic world tour, losing and gaining love, and creating my new album Special, y’all get to see the amount of time, patience, blood, sweat and tears that went into this process. It takes ten years to become an ‘overnight success,’ and hopefully I can inspire other young creatives to keep going.”
Lizzo’s untitled documentary adds to the premium streaming service’s growing catalog of music films. Last year, HBO and HBO Max rolled out new documentaries about Juice WRLD, DMX, Woodstock ’99 and many more iconic figures and moments in the wild music industry. With this documentary, HBO will look to cement itself as the premier destination for music documentaries.
“To get the chance to work with someone we have admired and adored for so long is a dream come true. Lizzo’s formidable talent has entertained and inspired millions,” HBO executive Sarah Aubrey added, according to VIBE.
“We are ecstatic to help share her incredible journey.”
