It's been revealed that an untitled Lizzo documentary will be arriving on HBO this autumn.

The HBO Max documentary, which is currently untitled, will premiere this autumn and will be directed by Doug Pray (The Defiant Ones).

Lizzo shared news of the upcoming documentary on stage at Warner Bros. Discovery Upfront presentation at Madison Square Garden.

According to a press release, the film will cover "the inspirational story behind her humble beginnings to her meteoric rise with an intimate look into the moments that shaped her hard-earned rise to fame, success, love and international stardom."

Lizzo said of the documentary, "Growing up I never dreamed I’d get to experience all of the things I’ve accomplished in my life, and I’m just getting started. I’m so excited I get to share and relive my journey with my fans and HBO Max. From Cuz I Love You to my dramatic world tour, losing and gaining love, and creating my new album Special, y'all get to see the amount of time, patience, blood, sweat and tears that went into this process. It takes ten years to become an ‘overnight success,’ and hopefully I can inspire other young creatives to keep going."

The Head of Original Content at HBO Max, Sarah Aubrey, added, "To get the chance to work with someone we have admired and adored for so long is a dream come true. Lizzo’s formidable talent has entertained and inspired millions, and we are ecstatic to help share her incredible journey."

Lizzo announced her Special album with the lead single "About Damn Time" last month, and also debuted the album title-track "Special" on SNL.

The untitled Lizzo documentary will premiere on HBO Max in autumn. Lizzo's Special album will be released 15 July via Nice Life Recording Company/Atlantic Records, and is available to pre-order now.
