Netflix to Debut Taylor Swift Doc ‘Miss Americana’ on Jan. 31, ‘Next in Fashion’ Coming This Month
Ten-time Grammy winner Taylor Swift has a new venue to conquer. Her upcoming documentary, “Taylor Swift: Miss Americana,” will stream on Netflix Jan. 31.
A week earlier, the doc, which charts the last few years of her life, will be part of the Sundance Film Festival’s opening night.
Lana Wilson (“After Tiller,” “The Departure”) directs “Miss Americana.” The production company says it offers a “raw and emotionally revealing look” at the celebrated singer.
Swift had an impressive 2019: All 18 tracks of her new album “Lover” appeared on the Billboard Hot 100, while she was featured in the movie “Cats,” for which she wrote the original song “Beautiful Ghosts.”
The singer also made headlines when she accused Big Machine Label of denying her the use of her older music and performance footage for the film. However, Variety reported in December that usage was secured.
Also launching on Netflix is “Next in Fashion,” a reality competition show hosted by fashion mavens Tan France (“Queer Eye”) and British model-fashion designer Alexa Chung. The show, which debuts Jan. 29, has 18 designers, who compete as teams, facing challenges each week. The winners earn $250,000 and an opportunity to showcase their collection at Net-a-Porter.
Upping the game, the contestants aren’t novices — they’ve designed for major labels, such as Stella McCartney and Alexander Wang.
