Sharon & company just can't let the fans have anything of value for Prince.

But let's sell a $120 pair of pj's and some house shoes. mad

That was expected. it was rumored that most of the people that we're interviewed weren't happy with the focus of the questoins being mostly on Prince's alledged 'drug use'.

I'd rather have a reputable music documentary director direct a series focussed on the music and projects than some gossipy standard and by the numbers 'rock star takes drugs' doc.

Yeah, I'm not shedding tears over this one... never really trusted that Netflix would do this right.

What. Are. You. On. About.

He is not replying to the cockblock statement and SPECIFICALLY says he agrees with the guy who says it's like Prince is still with us.

What Princebonics are you reading that conveys he says it was cancelled?

Yeah this is what I'm not understanding.

He is not confirming anything. I'm more curious about the guy who claims people from the estate are cockblocking the project vs Spicer.

I totally agree.I don't wanna see a tabloid-ish type documentary that spends too much time focusing on Prince's alleged drug use.

We don't know for sure it was going to focus on drug use. It was supposed to be 8 parts, covering different aspects of his life and career.

If a documentary happens, I would like to see it done by someone reputable and held in high regard. I just read that Antoine Fuqua is doing an MJ biopic. That's the level of person I want handling anything involving Prince. A name that is instantly recognizable and is known for a lot of great content. Can we get a Ken Burns Prince doc? I'm kidding, of course, but that's kinda in the vein of what I'm hoping for.

Was looking forward to this , really disappointed. Does that mean we can start getting releases again since the doc was supposedly blocking this from happening with the exclusive deal they made?

Cat had been upset by that sort of questioning and I heard directly from a former engineer that the doc had run into problems because of the bad light they were trying to shade on Prince.

May be Duane Tudahl or someone like that would be better, or one of us! That way they’d be a focus on the music, concerts and stuff.

this is prince world. our luck will be that we don't get any documentary (i can live with that) and yet
won't get any music either until the documentary contract stipulations end lol

oh well, maybe we'll get something in 2024.

there's too much money in this for it to just "be blocked" as if the prince estate could ever hope to win in a fight with netflix...
