Netflix is producing a documentary about the late vocalist/pianist Nina Simone, according to an article on Variety.com. Titled What Happened, Miss Simone?, the film is being directed by Liz Garbus in tandem with RadicalMedia. It will stream some time next year.
According to the article, “The documentary will incorporate previously unreleased audio recordings by Simone spanning three decades, plus rare archival footage and the artist’s most famous songs. What Happened, Miss Simone? will draw on more than 100 hours of recordings, telling her story largely in her own words, along with excerpts from her diaries and letters as well as interviews with Simone’s daughter, Lisa Simone Kelly, friends and collaborators.”
