Kanye West Docuseries Coming Soon: Report
Netflix has reportedly forked over a lot of cash for the rights to a documentary series spanning the last two decades of Kanye West’s life.
According to Billboard, the still-untitled series will premiere some time this year and feature never-before-seen archive footage and home videos.
It comes from Clarence Simmons and Chike Ozah (aka Coodie & Chike), who directed the videos for the rapper’s “Through the Wire” and the third version of “Jesus Walks.”
Billboard said Netflix paid a whopping $30 million U.S. for the rights to the docuseries but Variety cited a source as saying “that is not an accurate figure” and Forbes described it as “a massive stretch.”
Netflix has not commented on the project.
