Eagle Rock cues Winehouse album doc

Amy Winehouse died in 2011

MIPTV: London-based producer and distributor Eagle Rock Entertainment is in Cannes this week to shop a music documentary about the work of the late soul singer Amy Winehouse.

Amy Winehouse: Back to Black (1×60’) is produced by BBC Studios in association with Eagle Rock Films for Eagle Rock Entertainment and directed by Jeremy Marre.

Previously, Marre worked for broadcasters including the BBC, Channel 4 and PBS’s American Masters and also wrote and produced the doc.

The programme tells the story behind the conception, writing and recording of Winehouse’s album Back to Black, which won five Grammys and sold more than 12 million copies worldwide.

It includes contributions from Winehouse’s music producers Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi and also includes never before seen footage of the singer.

Many of Marre’s films explore musical subjects and include Bob Marley: Rebel Music, James Brown: Soul Survivor, Otis Redding: Soul Ambassador and Roots Rock Reggae.

Previously, Eagle Rock worked alongside a variety of artists including the Rolling Stones, Jay Z, Frank Sinatra, Madonna, James Brown and Radiohead. The company is headquartered in London, with offices in New York and Los Angeles, and is part of Universal Music Group.
