Television documentary on Marie is still untitled
STOCKHOLM (UPDATED) – Swedish production company Titan Television has yet to come up with a final name for their forthcoming television documentary about Marie Fredriksson, and her fight against cancer.
“This one-hour documentary is a detailed portrait of one of our [Sweden’s] biggest artists,” states Titan on their website, where the working title “The Look” had been on display since Friday. This, however, will definitely not be actual name given to the program once it is ready for broadcast.
“They put up a test page that wasn’t supposed to appear until today – but without a title – as it was never intended that [the program] would be called “The Look,” explains their publicist to The Daily Roxette. “The documentary is still untitled… simply ‘Marie Fredriksson’ at the moment.”
Titan’s site says “this is the story about when life suddenly and alarmingly changes… and about the meaning of music and songs in order to come back.”
The documentary – like music on the album itself – is expected to depict not only the pain and suffering she has endured the past two years, but also Marie’s energy, lust for life and fighting spirit.
Industry sources tell TDR that Titan is attempting to sell the documentary to television channels in other countries where Roxette – and thereby Marie Fredriksson – are well known. This is in line with Capitol Record’s own efforts to make the album available in as many countries as possible.
The program will first be shown on Sweden’s TV4 on November 24 at 21:00 CET.
