Last year, Apple had acquired rights to a Billie Eilish documentary featuring the singer’s life after her debut album in March 2019. Titled as “Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry,” the documentary feature is set to release in theaters and on Apple TV Plus in February 2021.
Apple paid $25 million for the feature-length documentary, making it the second music documentary on Apple TV Plus, after Beastie Boys Story. Directed by R.J. Cutler, it will highlight moments between the singer and her family with glimpse of behind-the-scenes looks from her public appearances. Coming from Apple Original Films, the documentary is in association with Interscope Films, Darkroom, This Machine, and Lighthouse Management & Media.
Previously, Apple had released music documentaries like Taylor Swift’s “The 1989 World Tour (Live)” and Ed Sheeran’s “Songwriter,” but they were available on Apple Music.
Eilish won five Grammy Awards in January for Best New Artist, Album of the Year, Pop Vocal Album of the Year, Record of the Year, and Song of the Year. Apple also awarded her with Artist of the Year at its first Apple Music Awards, back in December.
