March 19, 2021

US streaming service HBO Max has ordered a two-part documentary about late actor Brittany Murphy from Blumhouse Television and Pyramid Productions. The order marks the first for Blumhouse Television with HBO Max.

The documentary presents an in-depth, intimate character portrait exploring the life and career and circumstances surrounding the tragic death of 90s actor and rising star, Murphy. The series will go beyond the conspiracy theories and headlines, featuring new interviews by those closest to Brittany and new archival footage.

Jennifer O’Connell, executive vice president, Non-Fiction and Live-Action Family Programming at HBO Max, commented: “Our Brittany Murphy documentary cuts through the tabloid noise with an elevated, nuanced depiction of a sensational story. Crafting a grounded account of Brittany Murphy’s life struggles and sudden passing comes with great responsibility and we’ve partnered with a masterful creative team to produce a thoughtful examination of a tragedy that has long been cause for speculation.”
