HBO is taking an inside look at the life and career of Tina Turner, with the upcoming documentary Tina.
The premium cable network said in a press release Wednesday the film will include interviews with Turner from her hometown of Zurich, Switzerland, as well as never-before-seen footage, audio and personal photographs from the Grammy Award-winning artist.
The documentary covers Turner’s life over the last 60 years, including her abusive marriage to former musical partner Ike Turner, as well as her solo career starting in the mid-1980s. The movie will culminate with footage from opening night of the Broadway musical about her life titled “Tina – The Tina Turner Musical.”
Tina will also feature interviews with Oprah Winfrey; journalist and “I, Tina” co-author Kurt Loder; “Tina – The Tina Turner Musical” playwright Katori Hall; Angela Bassett, who played the music legend in the Oscar-nominated film What’s Love Got to Do With It; and Turner’s husband Erwin Bach.
Academy Award-winning directors Dan Lindsay and T.J. Martin helmed the documentary in partnership with Emmy-nominated producer Diane Becker.
The film’s release announcement comes on the same day Turner was named as a nominee for induction into the 2021 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Other nominees include Mary J. Blige, Kate Bush, Devo, Foo Fighters, The Go-Go’s, Iron Maiden, JAY-Z, Chaka Khan, Carole King, Fela Kuti, LL Cool J, New York Dolls, Rage Against the Machine, Todd Rundgren and Dionne Warwick.
Tina debuts Saturday, March 27 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on HBO and will be available to stream on HBO Max.
