Rights management company Target Entertainment and indie prodco Back2back Productions are partnering to coproduce a new documentary series on the images and wardrobes of some of the world’s most iconic figures.

 

 

The Changing Face Of… is a nine-part, one-hour factual series featuring archive footage and interviews to tell the stories of icons through their clothes, shoes, jewellery, paintings, photographs and faces, as they’ve changed over the years.

 

Back2back has started production on the first film, featuring Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, with documentaries on Elton John, Madonna, George Michael, Mick Jagger, Barry Manilow, Elizabeth Taylor, Liza Minnelli and Joan Collins to follow.

Target holds all international rights to the series, which will be launched at MIPCOM.

The Changing Face Of… is a totally fresh angle on how the worlds of fashion, art and photography define a star’s evolution both personally and professionally on the world stage … original and addictive, it will captivate audiences,” said Alison Rayson, CEO at Target.

The doc series follows the two fast turn-around documentaries coproduced by the companies earlier this year: In Search of Pippa Middleton, which aired on Bio channel in the UK, and Kate and The Real Housewives of Anglesey.
