Netflix buys the documentary on the life of Kanye West for $30 million
For the sum of 30 million dollars, Netflix won the documentary on the life of rapper Kanye West. The docuseries will be the result of the work and collaboration between directors Clarence ‘Coodie’ Simmons and Chike Ozah with TIME Studios.
The documentary will retrace the artist’s last 20 years by covering both record successes and personal aspects of Kanye West such as the launch of his fashion clothing line, the making of the albums and the run for the presidency of the United States in 2020.
The relationship between Clarence Simmons and the rapper will be at the center of the series that will tell the story of Kanye from his beginnings as a producer to his rise as a rapper and cultural icon. There will also be room for Donda West and the impact her death has had on Kanye’s life.
The docuseries will use several original footage and personal, “home” videos made by Kanye West and people close to him, including his now ex-wife Kim Kardashian.
There is no release date for the series yet, but it is rumored that the launch will take place by the end of 2021.
