Prince documentary will be produced for Netflix.

Variety reports that filmmaker Ava DuVernay has the “full cooperation” of Prince’s estate — which provide interviews, archival footage, photos and archive access.

Calling Prince “a genius, a joy and a jolt to the senses, DuVernay tweets, “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.”

The still untitled project is expected to be a multi-parter. No word on when it’s expected to debut.

Fasho Thoughts:

  • Will working with the estate mean that Prince’s opioid addiction and death will be toned down?
  • Working with the estate also means the project will get done without fear of lawsuits.
  • DuVernay is a friend of Oprah Winfrey.
  • She produced the OWN series Queen Sugar as well as the movie Selma.
