What you need to know
- Apple TV+ has announced Black & Blues: The Colorful Ballad of Louis Armstrong.
- The whole documentary will be told through Armstrong's own words.
The documentary, from Brian Grazer and Ron Howard's Imagine Documentaries, has now officially been greenlit by Apple TV+.
There's no telling when the new documentary will be released on Apple's streaming service, but it already sounds like a must-watch if you're even remotely interested in the man himself or his music. It'll feature hours of audio recordings and even include personal diaries.
You will of course need an Apple TV+ subscription to take the new documentary in. It runs $4.99 per month unless you're part of the Apple One party.
100% exclusive content for the price of a cup of coffee.
With TV+, you can watch well-produced, big-budget TV shows from famed directors, and starring award-winning actors and actresses across all your Apple devices and with up to six members of your Family Sharing group.
