A documentary series about disgraced 1970s pop star Gary Glitter is in development at Netflix.
The three-part series, currently under the working title Hunting Gary Glitter, will cover the singer’s life story and his later conviction for child sex abuse offences.
Along with featuring unseen photographs and archive footage, the series will include access to the journalists who pursued Glitter over several years and alerted authorities to his whereabouts in South East Asia, leading to his arrest.
The series is directed by Sam Hobkinson (The Confession) and produced by Cammy Millard (The Puppet Master). Production has been underway for a number of months.
According to The Times, Amazon Prime Update and ITV also have documentaries in the works about the singer.
