Sky Orders Judy Garland Doc from Icon Films


Sky Arts has commissioned Icon Films to produce a documentary spotlighting the late singer/actress Judy Garland (The Wizard of Oz).

Sky Arts’ Passions—Judy Garland by Marc Almond, hosted by the titular British singer/performer, will explore the life and career of “the hardest working woman in showbiz.” The 60-minute doc was commissioned by Bill Hobbins for Sky Arts. It will be executive produced by Stephen McQuillan for Icon Films.

“We are absolutely delighted to contribute to the Sky Arts Passions strand again with a film that tells the tragic yet magnificent story of Judy Garland,” remarked McQuillan, who serves as the head of factual at Icon Films.
