Billie Eilish just capped off an already big 2019 with a new Apple TV+ deal for a documentary that comes with a hefty $25 million paycheck.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, multiple sources claim the 17-year-old musician just closed the deal on the already filmed documentary.
The film was directed by R.J. Cutler and produced in collaboration with Eilish’s label, Interscope Records, for a budget that one source says is between $1 million and $2 million. It is expected to follow the 17-year-old singer-songwriter in the wake of the release of her debut album, ”When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?”
Reports claim Cutler was granted unprecedented access to Eilish’s private moments with family and behind-the-scenes of her public appearances.
The documentary, which was shopped to multiple distributors, comes on the heels of a year filled with massive success for Eilish, who was named Apple Music’s artist of the year and is set to headline the streaming service’s first-ever Apple Music Awards on Wednesday at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California.
The feature will be available through entertainment platform Apple TV+ instead of Apple Music, which has previously released documentary projects like Taylor Swift’s ”The 1989 World Tour (Live)” and Ed Sheeran’s ”Songwriter.”
Experts say this distinction signals a blurring of the lines between the $10-per-month music streaming service and the $5-per-month film and TV offering.
