Apple TV + has commissioned “The Supermodels”, an unparalleled documentary series that includes exclusive access to and interviews with Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista and Christy Turlington, who will look at their iconic modeling career and collective disruption of the 90s fashion scene. , which continues to resonate today. Greetings from Imagine Documentaries, the project will be directed and executive produced by two-time Oscar winner Barbara Kopple (“Harlan County, USA”, “American Dream”, “Shut Up and Sing”), and executive produced by Brian Grazer and Ron Howard , along with Campbell, Crawford, Evangelista and Turlington, who have joined an unprecedented partnership in the series.
“Supermodels” travel back to the 1980s, when four women from different corners of the world reunite in New York. Already forces in themselves, the gravitas they obtained by coming together, exceeded the industry itself. Their prestige was so extraordinary that it enabled the four to replace the brands they displayed, making the names Naomi, Cindy, Linda and Christy as prominent as the designers who styled them. Today, the four supermodels are at the forefront of culture through activism, philanthropy and business acumen. While the fashion industry continues to redefine itself – and the role of women in it – this is the ultimate story of power and how four women came together to assert it, paving the way for those who would follow.
The documentation series, which was produced under Apple’s exclusive first-look agreement with Imagine Documentaries, will also be executive produced by Sara Bernstein and Justin Wilkes.
“The Supermodels” will join Apple’s expanding offering of acclaimed, award-winning documentaries and documentary series, including the upcoming premiere of “Bruce Springsteen’s Letter to You”; “Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry”, directed by award-winning filmmaker RJ Cutler; five-time Emmy Award-nominated “Beastie Boys Story”; Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize-winning “Boys State”; Emmy Award-nominated series “Home”; and “Dads”, a heartfelt documentary that is also from Imagine Documentaries and is now streaming globally on Apple TV +.
