ShinAwiL and Bebbak, two Irish content producers, are collaborating to produce Sinéad (w/t), an access-led feature documentary about the work of Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter Sinéad O’Connor.

ShinAwiL’s Los Angeles-based executive producer Chuck LaBella has brought in U.S. producer Orian Williams (Control, Shadow of the Vampire) as executive producer with ShinAwiL’s Larry Bass and Bebbak’s Dave Fanning. Maurice Sweeney (I Dolours, Saving the Titanic) will direct.

Global sales will be handled by Jonathan Ford and Abacus Media Rights.

O’Connor, perhaps best known for her chart-topping 1990 single “Nothing Compares 2 U,” has been honored with Grammy Awards and Billboard Music Awards throughout a long career that’s generated both acclaim and controversy.

“There will only ever be one documentary with Sineád involved that tells the story of her work in her own words. This is it. Seldom do we get an opportunity for an artist to take us in to the story behind their greatest work,” said Bass, ShinAwiL’s CEO, in a news release.

The news follows ShinAwiL’s announcement earlier this year, that with LaBella’s hiring, it was looking to push further into the U.S. market.
