Anthony Bourdain Will be Remembered Through a New Documentary
If you miss Anthony Bourdain, you’ll be able to see more of him posthumously.
According to Vanity Fair, the documentary film will delve deeper into Bourdain’s life and work, and will hit screens as early as 2019.
The project is a collaboration with Zero Point Zero which produced Bourdain’s CNN series Parts Unknown, the hit show which first debuted on CNN in 2013 and won him multiple Emmy awards.
In June, the world mourned the loss of the beloved foodie when the saddening news revealed Bourdain died by suicide.
The film is billed as “the definitive Bourdain feature documentary,” and will first debut on the festival circuit before getting a theatrical release and eventually airing on CNN.
“As well as we knew Tony…there was still a hunger to know more about him, and to honour his work and celebrate him. The documentary format became one of the more obvious ways to go,” CNN’s executive for talent and content Amy Entelis told Vanity Fair.
Entelis went on to say, “We want to make it exquisite for Tony. We want to do him justice.”
CNN previously announced that the 12th and final season of Parts Unknown will air this fall.
While the documentary is underway, an authorised biography of the TV host titled The Oral Biography will feature a compilation of stories shared by Bourdain’s closest friends and edited by his long-time collaborator Laurie Woolever. The book is set for a fall 2019 release.
