Amazon have announced a new 90-minute documentary featuring YouTube, music and boxing star KSI, who has 35 million plus subscribers across his YouTube channels.
The show will follow KSI as he releases his second album, prepares for his sold-out tour and a headline show at The SSE Arena, Wembley.
Producer Louis Theroux said' “It is a huge thrill to be working with JJ on this definitive documentary. He is a huge talent, a totally self-created phenomenon who has gone from bedroom bound nerd with a handful of subscribers to an online colossus with fans in the millions, purely through the power of his work ethic and his will to win. The documentary will be an opportunity to see another side of JJ, understanding how he got where he is, the world of a premium online content creator today, and a man who has made it his brand never to lose, as he takes on the music business.”
KSI said: “I’m super excited for people to finally see what I mean by “hard work”. People will get to see the behind the scenes of the key events in my life and show them how I do everything I do.”
Amazon's Dan Grabiner added: “The extraordinary rise of KSI is a fascinating story of our time. We’re thrilled to be working with Louis and Mindhouse to join JJ behind-the-scenes of his make-or-break year. This is going to be an unprecedented insight into JJ’s world; how he came to be where he is today, and what’s next.”
More details will be revealed in due course.
