Channel 4 has ordered a documentary on the life of late TV presenter Caroline Flack from Curious Films.
Family and friends will pay tribute to the TV Presenter “in an emotional, intimate and candid documentary celebrating Caroline’s life and legacy.”
The 1×60’ documentary will hear from those closest to Caroline, delving beyond the headlines to reveal the woman behind the public persona, as well as exploring the pressures that fame, mental health, press and social media had on her throughout her life.
Commissioned by Becky Cadman and Lee McMurray for Channel 4 Factual Entertainment, the film is being produced by Curious Films, with BAFTA winner Charlie Russell directing and Dov Freedman as executive producer.
Lee McMurray said: “After working closely with Caroline throughout 2019, we agreed to make a film with her that would tell her story and reveal what it’s like to live in the glare of such intense scrutiny. Sadly, that film will never be made. We hope this project will be a testament to Caroline’s character, work and legacy, and we’re deeply grateful to her family and friends for their involvement.”
Becky Cadman added: “This film is about and for Caroline. A sister, daughter, friend and one of the most successful TV presenters in the country. She openly and honestly shared her struggles with fame and how it impacted her mental health. A rollercoaster life told through the memories of the people who knew her best, Caroline’s family and friends, we hope this will be a fitting tribute to her.”
Dov Freedman said: “Caroline was a hugely talented star and we hope this film will honour the commitment we made to her, by telling her story frankly and honestly.”
