No premiere date or title for the special has been announced yet, but Lizzo did confirm it’s slated to drop sometime this fall. Per the documentary’s logline, this special is showing viewers that Lizzo’s changed not only music but also culture.

Described as a journey of a trailblazing superstar, see how Lizzo has become the movement the world desperately needed just by being herself. The inspiring true story behind her humble beginnings will also extend into her meteoric rise with an intimate look into the moments that shaped her rise to fame, success, love, and international stardom.

Jean Smart also talks about her own shopping habits compared to Deborah's voracious appetite.

“Growing up I never dreamed I’d get to experience all of the things I’ve accomplished in my life, and I’m just getting started,” Lizzo teased in a statement. “I’m so excited I get to share and relive my journey with my fans and HBO Max. From ‘Cuz I Love You’ to my dramatic world tour, losing and gaining love, and creating my new album Special, y’all get to see the amount of time, patience, blood, sweat and tears that went into this process. It takes ten years to become an ‘overnight success,’ and hopefully I can inspire other young creatives to keep going.”

The project is being directed by Doug Pray who produces with Kevin Beisler, Kevin Weaver, Ryan Kroft, and Nicole Rocklin. Meanwhile, Lizzo serves as an executive producer alongside Len Blavatnik, Julie Greenwald, Craig Kallman, Charlie Cohen, Michael Rapino, Omar Al-Joulani, Lesley Olenik, Chad Wasser, and Mark Monroe.
