Intimate interviews with Turner herself in her Zurich, Switzerland hometown, as well as Angela Bassett, Oprah Winfrey, journalist Kurt Loder, playwright Katori Hall and Turner’s husband, Erwin Bach, will be featured in the doc alongside never-before-seen footage, audio tapes and personal photos.
During her tenure under Ike & Tina Turner, she had notched 20 Hot 100 hits from 1960 to 1975. But she spawned five consecutive top 40 hits on the Hot 100, including “What’s Love Got to Do With It,” following the release of her fifth solo album Private Dancer in 1984. She has sold over 100 million records and earned eight Grammy Awards between 1962 and 2008, not to mention her three Grammy Hall of Fame awards and a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.
The feature documentary comes from Oscar-winning directors Dan Lindsay and T.J. Martin (Undefeated, LA 92), and Lightbox, the production company founded by Oscar-winning producer Simon Chinn (Man on Wire, Searching for Sugar Man, Whitney) and Emmy-winning producer Jonathan Chinn (LA 92, Whitney), together with Emmy-nominated producer Diane Becker (The Final Year, Belushi).
Tina will debut on March 27 from 8 to 10 p.m. ET on HBO and will be available to stream on HBO Max.
