Apple pays $25 million for new Billie Eilish documentary set to air on Apple TV+
Apple has reportedly paid $25 million for the rights to a Billie Eilish documentary for Apple TV+ which follows the 17-year-old singer-songwriter after the release of her debut album in March, according to a story published by The Hollywood Reporter.
The documentary, directed by R J Cutler and produced in collaboration with Interscope Records, will be an Apple TV+ exclusive, unlike previous documentaries about musicians, like Taylor Swift’s The 1989 World Tour (Live) and Ed Sheeran’s Songwriter which Apple made available on Apple Music for viewers to stream as part of their Apple Music subscription.
Eilish performed live at the Steve Jobs Theater on Wednesday as part of the first Apple Music Awards, in which she was named Global Artist of the Year, along with Songwriter of the Year, shared with brother Finneas.
The documentary is set to be released in 2020.
