Netflix is set to release another celebrity docu-series, this time focusing on the 30-year career of Robbie Williams, although a release date has not yet been announced.
The streaming service released a trailer for the upcoming series on Twitter on September 28th, which teases plenty of unseen footage and drama.
The documentary has been directed by Joe Pearlman, who previously helmed Lewis Capaldi: How I’m Feeling and Mo Farah: No Easy Mile, and executive produced by Amy director Asif Kapadia.
In the trailer, Williams refers to himself as “just a knobhead from Stoke-on-Trent,” as clips from his long career as a member of Take That and solo artist are sandwiched between the present day.
An old clip shows Williams in tears as he texts on his phone backstage. When someone asks, “You all ready Rob?” he replies, “Nah. I really wish I did something else for a living.”
Elsewhere, viewers can hear Williams saying, “The thing that would destroy me has also made me successful. Big. More. Touch the fire. Touch the button. Push when it says ‘pull’. All of those things have given me my career, but there’s also a detrimental side to it too. Just depends which wolf you feed.”
Watch the trailer below.
