Disney+ is getting a documentary that spotlights artists whose careers were impacted by the London Camden neighborhood.
Aptly titled ‘Camden,’ the documentary will focus on music stars like Dua Lipa, Coldplay’s Chris Martin, Mark Ronson, Boy George, the Black Eyed Peas, and Lil Simz. Pete Doherty, Questlove, Yungblud, Little Nile Rodgers, Jazzie B, Bob Vylan, Chuck D, and Sister Bliss will also be highlighted or featured. According to THR, the documentary is helmed by Asif Kapadia as the series director. Toby Trackman, Yemi Bamiro, and co-director Sarah Lambert serve as episode editors.
The show was unveiled at the Edinburgh TV Festival on Wednesday as a spotlight on artists whose lives have been changed by Camden forever. The show is produced by Lightbox in association with Day One Pictures and Radical22—Dua Lipa’s production company.
“How has a small corner of North London changed music as we know it? This evocative series will reveal the extraordinary untold stories of how the lives and careers of many of today’s most iconic music acts were shaped by Camden, alongside some of the careers that were broken by it,” the teaser for the series begins.
“With access to some of the biggest music stars in the world whose lives were changed forever by this tiny part of London, this series will finally give Camden the recognition it deserves on a global stage.”
A release date for the documentary hasn’t been set yet. Dua Lipa still lives nearby, as she recently won a two-year legal battle to change Hampstead Heath to her liking after paying £6.75 for the Victorian property in 2020. The superstar submitted plans for a total overhaul of the house in 2021, drawn up by architect 4M Group. The proposed changes include a new basement for a subterranean swimming pool, a steam room, and a cinema and studio.
