Sounds interesting. Can’t come out soon enough. Bohemian Rhapsody has grossed nearly $750M worldwide so far. And the movie didn’t even get very good reviews. I don’t want a movie like that about Prince but it shows there is a market there to be tapped into.

This in particular sounds promising:
"He revealed that the documentary will be done in 6 episodes [assumed] and that it will not be structured like a normal documentary with various talking heads like many docs before. Through special access granted by Paisley Park, they will be utilizing a massive amount of archival material to structure the documentary using Prince‘s own voice and words from past interviews and footage"
The wooh is on the one!

Only 6 episodes? They'd better be 3 hours each episode. neutral

They could do the 6 episodes by time period. 1. His childhood. 2. Early career. 3. The 1980's. 4. Slave era/90's. 5. Independent 2000's. 6. His last years/days.

Better yet, they could do it by topic: 1. Spirit; 2. Musician; 3. Live Performer; 4. Comedian; 5. Visionary; 6. Humanitarian

If they didn’t blast “Get on the boat” at boarding time, someone needs to get sacked.

So this isn't a documentary at all, it's a compilation of video clips stretched over six episodes.

I very much doubt Prince footage exists of him discussing each and every project ever conceived.

Looks a mess already and the time is ticking.

He recorded everything. I bet there is a ton of audio of him talking during recording sessions that can fill 20 episodes if they wanted to. I would much rather hear his words than the usual "he got the idea for _____ from me" stuff that many of his associates are now freely saying in his absense. There is so much in the vault where Prince's story can be told by him and his music.

The 1980's could easily cover more than one episode. There are 9 albums (if you count his first two in '78 and '79), plus all of the protege groups, the PR film, SOTT film, and all of his tours. It seems this decade could easily take up several episodes depending on how detailed they get.

Ava Duverney appears to take GREAT pride in her work and seems very thoughtful about what she produces. It is very improbable that she would associate her name with a mess after a handful of years of critically acclaimed film and television projects.

I agree. But, I would say the same of the 2000's and the 10's. I'm most interested in 1972-1982 and 2006-2016. 72-82 is what shaped him. 06-16 is the man that he ulitmately evolved into. I feel like 83-90 has always been the focus and I would actually be disappointed if she spent an inordinate amount of time on that period. I'm not saying don't give that period equal time, but it should not be beyond equal time. Prince in 2014 is a much more interesting person than Prince in 1984 and many people don't know just how great he had become as a leader, humanitarian, musician, mentor, etc.

I don't think there will be a ton of footage from '72-80 unless the family contributes new childhood photos, home movies, etc. I think any new footage from the 80's that has never been seen would be very important to include. I don't know that Prince in 2014 was more interesting - he was just more mature in certain ways, more spiritual, and much more mellow.
