Discovery+ Acquires Documentary ‘Introducing Selma Blair’

The Documentary Will Be Released Globally in 2021

Streamer Discovery+ has acquired the broadcast rights to upcoming documentary “Introducing Selma Blair,” which spotlights Blair’s battle with multiple sclerosis. The logline: A deeply personal story of resilience, “Introducing Selma Blair spotlights a woman battling her disease as she grapples with challenges such as dissecting deep-rooted myths about beauty, the collective fear around disability and mortality, as well as the struggle for self-acceptance and the search for serenity. Complete with her trademark wit and humor, the film follows Blair as she reconciles a life-altering diagnosis and begins on a journey of monumental transition.

“I am beyond pleased and proud to have discovery+ be the home for my film ‘debut’ and for believing in the power of storytelling as a way to connect us all. I may be the subject of this film but my hope is that everyone sees themselves in it and finds some strength and joy they may not have known they had,” says Blair.

“Introducing Selma Blair” is directed by Rachel Fleit. LD’s Mickey Liddell and Pete Shilaimon produced the film with Troy Nankin. Cass Bird is an executive producer.
