The Voice judge will.i.am is to be the focus of a new BBC documentary.
BBC One has given the green-light to a new one-off documentary in which Joanna Lumley travels to Los Angeles to meet will.i.am and learn about his life from his childhood, through to his time with The Black Eyed Peas and his solo career. The documentary, titled Joanna Lumley Meets will.i.am, is being produced by Rain Media Entertainment and Big Red Productions with Mark Wells, Steven Lapping and Maxine Watson serving as the executive producers. Adrian Sibley is attached to direct.
“In this very special documentary for BBC One, Joanna Lumley spends time with the intriguing will.i.am, hanging out with his friends and family and delving into his background to find out just what motivates this extraordinarily driven individual who seems more than anybody else to define the pace, energy and creativity of the time in which we live”, said BBC One Controller Charlotte Moore, who commissioned the documentary.
While Emma Willis, The BBC’s Head of Documentary Commissioning, added: “We’re absolutely delighted to be welcoming Joanna Lumley back to factual television on the BBC. Joanna is one of Britain’s most popular personalities and will bring warmth and insight to this unique documentary.”
