A series that fans of all things Aretha Franklin - and who doesn't adore the music legend? - can look forward to is coming to Disney Plus.
'Genius: Aretha', starring Oscar nominee Cynthia Erivo ('Bad Times at the El Royale', 'Harriet') as the singing sensation, will debut in Ireland this summer.
This is the third 'Genius' season, an anthology series from Nat Geo which dramatises the fascinating stories of the world’s most brilliant innovators and their extraordinary achievements with their volatile, passionate and complex personal relationships.
Franklin's many hit songs include "A Natural Woman", "Think" and, "You Make Me Feel Like a Natural Woman"; there was also, of course, "Respect", and "Chain of Fools".
'Genius' highlights both her singing career and her work as a civil right activist.
The series also stars Emmy winner Courtney B. Vance ('American Crime Story') as the singer's preacher father Rev. C.L. Franklin.
The cast also includes Malcolm Barrett, David Cross, Patrice Covington and Steven Norfleet.
'Genius: Aretha' is the first ever and only authorised scripted series based on the life of the Queen of Soul.
According to the official synopsis, the show "will explore Aretha Franklin’s musical genius and incomparable career, as well as the immeasurable impact and lasting influence she has had on music and culture around the world. Franklin was a gospel prodigy, an outspoken civil rights champion and widely considered the greatest singer of the past 50 years, receiving countless honours throughout her career."
