Willie Nelson and Family is currently being filmed with participation of country legend.

The life and music of Willie Nelson will be covered extensively in an upcoming docuseries. Willie Nelson and Family, produced by Blackbird Presents and Sight Unseen, is currently being filmed with the participation of the country legend and his family.

Developed by Nelson’s manager Mark Rothbaum and Blackbird Presents Founder and Chief Creative Officer Keith Wortman, Willie Nelson and Family is being directed by Thom Zimny and Oren Moverman. The series will feature the singer, his family, and friends in a variety of locales, including Austin, Maui, Nashville, Los Angeles, and New York. With access to the singer’s archives, directors are able to put together a story about one of the 20th and 21st century’s most enduring musical figures. A premiere date has not yet been announced.

“Words like ‘honored,’ ‘excited’ and ‘humbled’ don’t come close to describing the way we feel about being entrusted with telling Willie’s story,” Zimny and Moverman said in a statement. “And what a story it is! We are celebrating the music, the career, the long road, the family, friends and history. But, more than anything, we are piecing together a narrative – one never before seen in its entirety – about an extraordinary man with a unique ability to bring people together.”

Now 88 years old, Nelson is still at work on a variety of projects. Early in 2021, he released his latest album That’s Life, a musical tribute to Frank Sinatra. In June, he released the book Letters to America, which collected Nelson’s writing on the topic of being a U.S. citizen. Next month, he’ll headline the Outlaw Music Festival Tour, with a rotating cast of artists that includes Sturgill Simpson, Chris Stapleton, Margo Price, Yola, and Kathleen Edwards.

New Willie Nelson documentary Saturday

Monday, April 5th, 2021

Even after penning some of Nashville’s best-known hits, his record labels’ cookie-cutter approach to creating music made Willie Nelson contemplate hocking vacuum cleaners. Distraught, he pulls stakes and heads back to hardscrabble Texas. There, a gritty blend of rednecks, hippies and an emerging counter culture are brewing and connect with Willie’s unorthodox approach to songwriting and performing. It’s tagged the “Outlaw Movement” and Willie Nelson is poster boy. But would it succeed as the country music industry was entering a whole new age? And what hard life lessons would Willie learn in the end?

The AMS team crafted all-new Willie Nelson and Johnny Cash 1-hr documentary specials that premier back to back this Saturday, April 10th on Reelz. Set your DVRs!
