A new Dan Lindsay and TJ Martin (Undefeated, LA 92) documentary about Tina Turner is coming to HBO in March, as well as to stream on HBO Max. The documentary titled Tina will focus on Turner’s rise to fame, the abuse she went through from her ex-husband Ike Turner, as well as her iconic comeback in the 80s.
According to Pitchfork, the documentary will include an interview from Turner in her Switzerland hometown, a huge amount of unseen footage that spans over 60 years, as well as interviews with Angela Bassett (What’s Love Got To Do With It), husband/former record executive Erwin Bach, Oprah Winfrey, and many others. Simon Chinn and Jonathan Chinn, co-founders of Lightbox Productions state Tina is “…the ultimate celebration of a global superstar and an intimate portrait of a woman who overcame extreme adversity to define her career, her identity and her legacy on her own terms. From her early career as the queen of R&B to her record-breaking sell-out arena tours of the ’80s, Tina Turner draws back the curtain to invite us into her private world in a way she has never done before”. Just earlier today, Turner was announced as a nominee for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Class of 2021. She was previously inducted alongside her then husband Ike Turner in 1991.
Tina will be available to stream on HBO Max on March 27th.
