Director R.J. Cutler (Billie Eilish: The World’s a Little Blurry, Belushi) is set to helm a documentary about Martha Stewart for Netflix.

The untitled documentary feature will delve into the life and times of the iconic television personality and businesswoman (pictured).

Stewart has written numerous bestselling books, is the publisher of Martha Stewart Living magazine and hosted two syndicated television programs: Martha Stewart Living, which ran from 1993 to 2004, and Martha, which ran from 2005 to 2012.

Notably, in 2004, Stewart was convicted of charges related to the ImClone stock trading case. She served five months in federal prison and was released in March 2005.

The film will be produced by Cutler’s This Machine, an Industrial Media company, with Cutler, Trevor Smith, Jane Cha Cutler and Alina Cho producing. Elise Pearlstein is executive producer for This Machine.
