From CNN, a six-part series executive produced by Matt Robins and Emma Cooper of October Films, and Amy Entelis and Lyle Gamm for CNN Original Series.
“Diana, produced by October Films, re-examines the life of an icon through the lens of modernity: reframing her story to discover the real woman behind the ‘People’s Princess,’” CNN notes. “Drawing on a new generation of voices, including interviews from those close to her, the series is a fresh take that reveals a princess unlike any other. A woman more complex than history has acknowledged and a feminist role model who showed vulnerability and strength, Diana was truly a blueprint for the modern woman.”
