May 1, 2013  •  Post A Comment

HBO is working on an ambitious miniseries about the life and music of Frank Sinatra, reports the New York Post. The singer’s family is providing home movies and private performances, which haven’t been seen before by the public, the piece notes.

The documentary miniseries will air across four nights in 2014, and is produced by Frank Marshall, the noted Hollywood producer behind "Raiders of the Lost Ark" and the "Bourne" movie series.

Some details, such as the project’s working title and a specific air date, aren’t yet known. Directing the series will be documentary filmmaker Alex Gibney.

Sinatra, who died at age 82 in 1998, has been the focus of other projects, with "Goodfellas" director Martin Scorsese working on a project for more than a decade, the piece notes.
