Anyone else absolutely LOVE Frank Sinatra? His music is timeless and the more we learn about him as a person, one can’t deny that his life is intriguing AF.
We’ve long been fans and we’ve definitely been fans of Bill Condon’s for what seems like forever. He did direct some Twilight movies and if you’ve been around us long enough you know that for us, everything leads back to Twilight.
Netflix has gotten the rights to the bio-series from Bill Condon, Lionsgate Television, Universal Music Group’s Polygram Entertainment and Frank Sinatra Enterprises. And one reason that we’re excited about this one is that the series is executive produced by Franks daughter, Tina. You know when family is involved, there is a lot of care taken.
And there is the fact that we know that Bill takes care with everything that he does. The genius will be writing and directing the pilot, as well as serving as showrunner of the series.
The bio-series is described as, “the definitive bio-series on the iconic singer, actor, producer and quintessential celebrity of 20th Century America.”
We can’t wait to see everything from him growing up, his career, the Rat Pack, and his relationships. Sinatra famously dated some of the biggest stars of his time – Ava Gardner, Mia Farrow, Judy Garland, Lauren Bacall, Marilyn Monroe and Angie Dickinson.
It will definitely be a series we watch. Will you?
