By Rebecca Theodore-Vachon 

HBO Max announced  an upcoming documentary on superstar Lizzo to be released this fall. The singer, songwriter, rapper, flutist and actress announced the project at the Warner Bros. Discovery upfront event Wednesday at Madison Garden.

The untitled documentary will chronicle Lizzo’s meteoric rise to fame from very humble beginnings, with intimate moments that shaped her journey to international stardom.

“To get the chance to work with someone we have admired and adored for so long is a dream come true,” HBO Max original content chief Sarah Aubrey said in a statement. “Lizzo’s formidable talent has entertained and inspired millions, and we are ecstatic to help share her incredible journey.”

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,” Lizzo shared. “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 ten years to become an ‘overnight success,’ and hopefully I can inspire other young creatives to keep going.”

Emmy-Award winning filmmaker Doug Pray (The Defiant One’s) directs. Lizzo is on board as  executive producer through her production company Lizzobangers. Pray also serves as a producer with his producing partner Stephanie Meurer.
