Apple TV + has a new documentary series on its way to the streaming network, this time focused on the lives and careers of supermodels.
Apple TV + has confirmed that they have secured the distribution rights to The supermodels, a new “documentary series” that will explore “unique and iconic careers” for supermodels such as Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford and Christy Turlington. The upcoming series is directed by Oscar winner Barbara Kopple (American dream).
Supermodels ”dates 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.
Apple collaborated with Imagine Documentaries, which will also produce the series.
There is no word on when The supermodels premieres on Apple TV +, but as soon as we know more, we’ll share it.
It’s been a busy couple of weeks for documentaries on Apple TV +. Before the end of September, it was confirmed that Billie Eilish: The world’s a bit blurry was on its way to the streaming service. And earlier this week we heard the Bruce Springsteen documentary Letter to you premieres on Apple TV + later this month.
