Lizzo documentary in the works

MET Gala 2022

A documentary about Lizzo’s life and career will be released on HBO Max later this year.

The Juice hitmaker announced the project from the stage of the Warner Bros. Discovery Upfront presentation at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday.

“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,” she stated. “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 10 years to become an ‘overnight success,’ and hopefully, I can inspire other young creatives to keep going.”

The untitled project, directed by Doug Pray, will delve into Lizzo’s humble beginnings and follow her rise to stardom. The singer will serve as an executive producer.

And Sarah Aubrey, head of original content at HBO Max, can’t wait for fans to see the film.

“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, and we are ecstatic to help share her incredible journey,” she added.
