HBO Documentary Explores Brittany Murphy’s Mysterious Death

HBO Max has a brand new documentary lined up, and this time they’re exploring the tragic death of actress Brittany Murphy.


Blumhouse is the production house behind the new Brittany Murphy documentary on HBO Max. The documentary is directed by Cynthia Hill (Private Violence), and is described as “an intimate, in-depth character portrait of actress Brittany Murphy, going beyond the headlines to explore the mysterious circumstances surrounding her tragic death at 32 years old.” The new documentary includes new footage and interviews with people who were close to the actress and strives to go “beyond the tabloid rumors to examine the impact of Hollywood’s sexism on her struggles, as well as lingering concerns about her relationship with husband Simon Monjack.”
