Titled Amy Winehouse: 10 Years On, BBC Two’s forthcoming documentary will explore Amy’s life and career and be primarily told from the perspective of her mother, Janis Winehouse. According to BBC, Janis was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2003, which thoroughly motivated her to make the documentary before the disease “threatens to strip her of her memories of Amy.”
Rolling Stone reports that Janis spoke on untrue and misleading depictions and narratives surrounding her daughter on past documentaries like Amy, saying, “I don’t feel the world knew the true Amy, the one that I brought up, and I’m looking forward to the opportunity to offer an understanding of her roots and a deeper insight into the real Amy.”
A release date for Amy Winehouse: 10 Years On has not yet been revealed, so stay tuned for updates.
