Dousic Media Group and Dousic Film & Television (affiliates of Dousic Entertainment LLC), in association with Tillman Music Group, and The Andretta Tillman Estate, have announced the start of production on “A Child of Destiny,” a new documentary about the life of Andretta Tillman and her managing of Beyoncé and Destiny’s Child.
Per the press release…
The production will bring viewers a look at the the sacrifice, the heartaches, the setbacks, and triumphs of Tillman’s life and her everlasting impact on Beyoncé Knowles and Destiny’s Child.
The people interviewed for the documentary are considered “unsung heroes” according to J. Randy Taraborrelli author of Becoming Beyoncé.
“I sought to give full credit to the unsung heroes of Beyoncé Knowles-Carter’s record-breaking career, those who sacrificed behind the scenes to help an unassuming youngster from Houston, Texas, realize her greatest ambitions and biggest dreams,” said Taraborrelli.
“We are excited to finally be bringing my mother’s story to the public,” said Armon Tillman. “So often people have told the Beyoncé and Destiny’s Child story, and she was briefly mentioned or forgotten all together. The blessing over the past two years is that her name is back in the news again. Thanks to J Randy, and most especially to her former partner and dear friend Kenny Moore.”
“Not too often do documentary’s focus on the extreme behind the scene reality of what actually happened with the creation of Destiny’s Child, instead reflecting a one-dimensional point-of-view,” remarked Vineet Sen, Dousic Media Group head of original programming and production.
“A Child of Destiny” seeks to offer a different perspective on the reality of the origin of Destiny’s Child, while showcasing the woman who navigated their young lives and careers, but hasn’t enjoyed living the dream as they have.
Gigi Githoro has been tasked to produce the documentary for Dousic Films, with Kenny Moore and Armon Tillman as executive producers, and Michael Ferguson as co-executive producer.
“After two years of working on the ‘ins and outs’ of writing the book, the script for the documentary and the screenplay for the movie that will start production in the fall, all while balancing my other responsibilities and my personal life, this is becoming a second ride to destiny after all these years and I can’t express how excited I am,” said Kenny Moore.”
The “A Child of Destiny” documentary will be completed and ready for release by May 2016.
