Following in the footsteps of the very successful (and really bloody good) Beckham documentary series, Robbie Williams is arriving on the streaming service this November.
There is also a biopic currently in the works about Robbie Williams, the bad boy of British pop music, and apparently he will be played by a CGI monkey in that. No, really. More details on that here.
While we wait for that, why not revisit Williams’ story on Netflix? Imaginatively titled Robbie Williams, the 4-part documentary series is arriving on Netflix 8 November and there’s a trailer now too.
Take a peek at the Robbie Williams trailer below.
These intimate music documentaries are very popular at the moment. Louis Tomlinson, KSI and Ed Sheeran have all had them in the last year or so. Netflix also just released a similar documentary series on David Beckham out into the world and it’s been getting a very positive word of mouth. I know nothing about football and I enjoyed it tremendously, so perhaps Netflix do know what they’re doing here.
Robbie Williams, the series, is executive produced by Asif Kapadia, so it seems that we are in safe hands. The documentary will include never-before-seen material from Williams’ career as well as interviews with the artist himself.
Williams is the best selling solo artist in UK music history and the documentary aims to “explore the real human being behind the salacious headlines”, according to a press release from Netflix. In the trailer, Williams watches footage of himself while noting such an activity should only occur when one is at the pearly gates of heaven, looking back.
It’ll be a real treat for the fans of Williams’ music, whether that’s his involvement with Take That or his solo career. The tagline accompanying the poster reads: “Raw. Honest. Real.”
We’ll be the judge of that on 8 November when Robbie Williams is available on Netflix worldwide.
