It’s “About Damn Time” a documentary about Lizzo’s rise to fame is officially in the works. The singer announced the project on Wednesday (May 18) at the Warner Bros. Discovery Upfront presentation at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. The untitled project is expected to arrive this fall on HBO Max, following her Amazon Prime series, Watch Out for the Big Grrrls.
Speaking to Billboard, Lizzo said, “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. 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.”
Sarah Aubrey, who acts as head of original content at HBO Max, also said, “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.”
Lizzo’s forthcoming studio album, Special is out on July 15.
