Netflix is rumored to have inked a three-project deal with Beyonce worth $60 million.
Reported by Variety, the very first of the three specials is actually “Homecoming,” the behind-the-scenes look at Queen Bey’s 2018 Coachella performance, which The New York Times’ music critic Jon Caramanica described by saying: “There’s not likely to be a more meaningful, absorbing, forceful and radical performance by an American musician this year, or any year soon, than Beyoncé’s headlining set.”
Beyoncé is credited as executive producer, writer and director of the documentary, which highlights the star’s work ethic and creative process. Among the film’s voiceovers, Beyoncé reveals: “What people don’t see is the sacrifice. I definitely pushed myself further than I knew I could. And I learned a very valuable lesson. I will never, never push myself that far again.” Netflix is reported to have paid $20 million for the rights of “Homecoming” alone.
Confirmation has not yet been provided by Beyoncé’s team or Netflix, but posted for more information as it arrives.
