Anna Nicole Smith Doc Headed to Netflix


An untitled Anna Nicole Smith documentary from director Ursula Macfarlane (The Lost Sons, Untouchable) will debut on Netflix.

The film will feature never-before-seen footage from an unreleased documentary of a young, unguarded Smith, offering unique glimpses into her life outside of the spotlight. Testimony from those who knew her best will give a full picture of who Smith was off-camera.

The series is executive produced by Caryn Capotosto and Propagate Content’s Ben Silverman, Howard T. Owens and Jonathan Schaerf.

Macfarlane said: “I approached Anna Nicole’s story as an epic mystery tale. How did someone with so much charisma and jaw-dropping beauty, with the world at her feet, fall so far, so quickly? Now feels like the right time to reexamine the life of yet another beautiful young woman whose life has been picked over and ultimately destroyed by our culture. I am thrilled to work with Netflix and Propagate to make a moving, unflinching and sensitive portrayal of one of the most misunderstood women of our time.”
