Apple TV+ has greenlit “The Supermodels,” a new docuseries that will feature exclusive access to and interviews with Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista and Christy Turlington, who will revisit their iconic modeling careers and collective disruption of the ‘90s fashion scene. Hailing from Imagine Documentaries, the project will be directed and executive produced by two-time Academy Award-winner Barbara Kopple (“Harlan County, USA,” “American Dream,” “Shut Up & Sing”), and executive produced by Brian Grazer and Ron Howard, along with Campbell, Crawford, Evangelista and Turlington, who have joined in an unprecedented partnership on the series.
The logline: “The Supermodels” travels back to the 1980s, when four women from different corners of the world united in New York. Already forces in their own right, the gravitas they achieved by coming together transcended the industry itself. Their prestige was so extraordinary that it enabled the four to supersede the brands they showcased, making the names Naomi, Cindy, Linda, and Christy, as prominent as the designers who styled them. Today, the four Supermodels remain on the frontlines of culture through activism, philanthropy, and business prowess. As the fashion industry continues to redefine itself – and women’s roles within it – this is the ultimate story of power and how four women came together to claim it, paving the way for those to follow.
The docuseries, which is produced under Apple’s exclusive, first look agreement with Imagine Documentaries, will also be executive produced by Sara Bernstein, and Justin Wilkes.
