At the moment we can find six documentary series in Apple TV+ catalog. Yesterday Apple officially announced another production of this type, entitled "Supermodels".
"Supermodels" will talk about the careers of four famous models - Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista and Christy Turlington. The series will be produced for Apple by Imagine Documentaries. The film will be directed and produced by Barbara Kopple, author of the Oscar-winning documentary "Harlan County U.S.A.". Brian Grazer and Ron Howard are also involved in the series, who worked together on the film "Beautiful Mind" and the series "Rich Bankrupts". Apple has not yet revealed the anticipated date of release of "Supermodels".
"Supermodels" is not the only new documentary series created for Apple TV+. Next month the series "Becoming You" will appear in the catalog of the service, telling the story of children's lives in different corners of the world, and in December it will be joined by the nature series "Earth At Night In Color", devoted to the nightlife of animals.
Apple TV+ has ordered “The Supermodels,” an unparalleled event docuseries that will feature exclusive access to and interviews with Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista and Christy Turlington, who will revisit their iconic modeling careers and collective disruption of the ‘90s fashion scene, which continues to reverberate today. Hailing from Imagine Documentaries, the project will be directed and executive produced by two-time Academy Award winner Barbara Kopple (“Harlan County, USA,” “American Dream,” “Shut Up and Sing”), and executive produced by Brian Grazer and Ron Howard, along with Campbell, Crawford, Evangelista and Turlington, who have joined in an unprecedented partnership on the series.
“The Supermodels” travels back to the 1980s, when four women from different corners of the world united in New York. Already forces in their own right, the gravitas they achieved by coming together transcended the industry itself. Their prestige was so extraordinary that it enabled the four to supersede the brands they showcased, making the names Naomi, Cindy, Linda and Christy as prominent as the designers who styled them. Today, the four supermodels remain on the frontlines of culture through activism, philanthropy and business prowess. As the fashion industry continues to redefine itself – and women’s roles within it – this is the ultimate story of power and how four women came together to claim it, paving the way for those to follow.
The docuseries, which is produced under Apple’s exclusive first-look agreement with Imagine Documentaries, will also be executive produced by Sara Bernstein and Justin Wilkes.
“The Supermodels” will join Apple’s expanding offering of acclaimed, award-winning documentaries and docuseries, including the soon-to-premiere “Bruce Springsteen’s Letter to You”; “Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry,” directed by award-winning filmmaker R.J. Cutler; five-time Emmy Award-nominated “Beastie Boys Story”; Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize Award-winning “Boys State”; Emmy Award-nominated series “Home”; and “Dads,” a heartfelt documentary which is also from Imagine Documentaries and is now streaming globally on Apple TV+.
