Billie Eilish is set to get the documentary treatment that most celebrities do, and Apple is looking to pay $25 Million to the star to get the documentary rights in their hands.
It’s been an absolutely massive year for Billie Eilish, with a No. 1 single and album and multiple awards coming her way. Now the young star on the rise will be getting the documentary treatment thanks to the powers that be at Apple. Partnering with Apple TV+ on a documentary that has allegedly already been shot, the 17-year old icon will be headed to our screens sooner than we’d expect.
Per THR, Eilish could receive a hefty $25 million for the doc if Apple does indeed pick it up, though other reports haven’t been as specific about the doc’s price tag. Variety is reporting that the number is inaccurate, and it would actually be part of a larger overall deal between Eilish and Apple, which would make way more sense. Eilish was recently named Apple Music’s artist of the year, and she headlined a concert for the Apple Music Awards, so she’s no stranger to deals with the company.

Directed by R.J, Cutler, the documentary was reportedly made for a modest $1 million to $2 million, and will chronicle the release of Eilish’s major debut album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?.
While details are sparse, the documentary is expected to arrive sometime in 2020 as Apple TV+ builds its roster of original content.
