Laura Fairrie is directing LADY BOSS: THE JACKIE COLLINS STORY, the “truth-is-stranger-than-fiction” documentary about best-selling author, rebel, actress, millionaire Hollywood chronicler, mother, sister, survivor, and unlikely feminist, Jackie Collins.
LADY BOSS: THE JACKIE COLLINS STORY tells the untold true story of one of the world’s best-selling novelists whose turbulent, complex, and inspiring life rivaled the spicy plots she dreamed up for her novels.
AGC Studios, CNN Films, and the BBC Arts will co-finance the Laura Fairrie-directed, John Battsek and Lizzie Gillett of Passion Pictures-produced (Oscar®-winners One Day in September and Searching for Sugar Man, Oscar®-nominated Winter on Fire: Ukraine’s Fight for Freedom, Restrepo) LADY BOSS: THE JACKIE COLLINS STORY.
AGC International, the international sales and distribution arm of fast-growing AGC Studios, will handle global distribution rights on behalf of Passion Pictures and will introduce the film to U.S. domestic and international buyers in the fall upon its completion. CNN Films (APOLLO 11, RBG, Three Identical Strangers) will retain broadcast television rights in North America. BBC Arts will retain broadcast television for BBC Two on terrestrial television, and catch up VOD rights in the U.K. on BBC iPlayer.
