Netflix is going to be getting a documentary series about Prince’s life, and it will be directed by Ava Duvernay, who also directed Oscar-nominated films Selma and 13th.
“Prince was a genius, a joy and a jolt to the senses. He was like no other. He shattered preconceived notions, smashed boundaries, and shared his heart through his music. The only way I know how to make this film is with love and great care. I’m honored to do so and grateful.” https://t.co/fNsISCwtzg

According to Variety, the renowned filmmaker has been working on the show for several months. After getting the greenlight from his estate, the series has been set to cover Prince’s entire life, including his rise to stardom.
The show will feature images, video footage, and interviews of the star from his extensive archive, but no release date has been announced yet.
