Willie Nelson Docuseries In The Works

Willie Nelson will be the subject of a new docuseries, directed by Thom Zimny, best known for his work with Bruce Springsteen, and Emmy winner and Oscar nominee Oren Moverman.

“Willie Nelson and Family” is described as a “definitive” look at Willie, who is said to be an “enthusiastic participant” in the project which is already “well underway.” Willie has reportedly opened up his archives to the directors, and is even encouraging friends and family to participate.

  • “We are celebrating the music, the career, the long road, the family, friends and history,” the directors share in a joint statement. “But, more than anything, we are piecing together a narrative — one never before seen in its entirety — about an extraordinary man with a unique ability to bring people together; folks of all races, orientations, genders, political ideologies and musical leanings,” adding, “These days, we sure could use the healing powers of Willie Nelson.”
