Tina Turner Documentary Coming To HBO

Courtesy of HBO Max, TINA, the documentary about the iconic singer Tina Turner will arrive on March 27th.

Originally announced back in 2018, the visual and auditory biography is assumed to be the most ambitious documentary project about the “Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll.”

Directed by Dan Lindsay and T.J. Martin, the forthcoming film follows the singer’s initial rise to stardom, her private struggles as a survivor of abuse at the hands of ex-husband/music collaborator Ike Turner, and her remarkable career resurgence in the 1980s. According to a press release the documentary makes voluminous use of primary source material, including a “stunning amount of archival footage spanning 60 years”, interviews with Tina herself, figures such as Angela Bassett, husband/former record exec Erwin Bach, Oprah Winfrey, and others.

This week, the multi-Grammy Award winner was announced as a nominee for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Class of 2021. She was previously inducted alongside Ike Turner in 1991 and hopes to make the cut as a solo artist exactly 30 years later.
