Lizzo Documentary Announced At HBO Max, Set To Bow This Fall

A brand-new, untitled Lizzo documentary is coming to HBO Max.

The Grammy-winning artist recently announced the project from the stage of the Warner Bros. Discovery upfront presentation on Wednesday.

According to HBO, Max the untitled documentary will follow "three-time GRAMMY® Award-winning superstar singer, songwriter, rapper, flutist and actress Lizzo as she makes history shifting the sound, soul, and spirit of popular music and culture all while balancing the challenges of life, love and stardom."

Here's the official logline for the film:

Every once in a while, an artist changes not only music, but culture as well.  Lizzo has done both.  This is the journey of a trailblazing superstar who has become the movement the world desperately needed just by being herself.  The HBO Max documentary shares the inspirational story behind her humble beginnings to her meteoric rise with an intimate look into the moments that shaped her hard-earned rise to fame, success, love and international stardom.

Lizzo is 'excited' to share her journey with fans

During her Warner Bros. Discovery Upfront presentation at Madison Square Garden, Lizzo expressed excitement over the documentary, which she hoped inspired her millions of fans.

“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 said. “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.”

The film is directed by Emmy-Award-winning filmmaker Doug Pray  and produced by Kevin Beisler, Kevin Weaver, Ryan Kroft and Nicole Rocklin. Lizzo is serving as the executive producer with her production company Lizzobangers.

The untitled documentary will be available to stream on HBO Max this fall.
