Demi Lovato’s opening up to the world…
YouTube has given the green light to a four-part documentary series following the 27-year-old half-Mexican American singer/actress.
The still-untitled series will be directed by Michael D. Ratner, who directed and executive produced Quibi’s recent &Music series.
The new docuseries will follow Lovato on her personal and musical journey over the past three years. Earlier this year, Lovato gave an emotional performance at the Grammys after taking time off after a highly publicized overdose, and later sang the National Anthem before Super Bowl 54 between the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs.
The project comes nearly two years after the digital platform and the This Is Me singer were set to do a follow-up doc to Demi Lovato: Simply Confidential.
That film, which was directed by Hannah Lux Davis, was released in 2017 and has been viewed more than 32 million times. It chronicled the recording of her Tell Me You Love Me record and her life and career including her stint on the Disney Channel and her struggles with bipolar disorder and addition.
The Google-owned service had been in talks to make a follow-up film in 2018 before Lovato overdosed and that project was put on hold.
She reportedly recently watched Justin Bieber’s docuseries and reached out to YouTube to say she’s ready to make another doc.
