Acclaimed filmmaker Amy Berg ("Deliver Us From Evil," "West of Memphis") is set to direct and produce the upcoming Janis Joplin documentary "Janis: Little Girl Blue" for Disarming Films, Jigsaw Productions and American Masters.
Currently in production, Berg's documentary strips away Janis' rock 'n' roll persona to reveal the gentle, trusting, innocent, but powerful woman behind the legend.
Alex Gibney ("Taxi to the Darkside", "The Armstrong Lie") is producing alongside Jeff Jampol ("When You're Strange"). The film will have its U.S. broadcast premiere on the American Masters series on PBS.
