A documentary about the hit list top singer behind iconic hits including “Last Dance”, “Love to Love You Baby” and “She Works Hard for the Money” is on its way. Deadline reports that Universal Music Group’s film and television division, Polygram Entertainment, has a documentary about Donna Summer on the way.
Titled “Donna,” The Doctor will be directed by Oscar-winner Roger Ross Williams (“Life, Animated”) and Brooklyn Sudano, Summer’s daughter.
“Ever since I was a teenager, I’ve been overwhelmed by Donna Summers music,” Williams said. “She had a voice that spoke to my soul on the dance floor. Being able to tell his story from a very personal perspective and doing so with his ingenious daughter Brooklyn is a dream come true. I’m grateful to Polygram for making this happen. “
Sudano added: “It was important for Roger and I to offer a perspective on my mother’s personal journey and artistry in a way that reflects her complexity and talent that digs deeper than the disco ball. Her life, like her music, was adorned to heal and give hope, and we believe this film will do the same. “
Summer died in 2012. The five-time Grammy winner is one of the best-selling artists of all time.
