A Brittany Murphy Docuseries Is Headed to HBO Max

Sometimes the last thing that happens in a person’s life shouldn’t be how they’re remembered, but depending on the circumstances of what happened and why there are those times when a celebrity’s reputation and legacy might be mired in controversy and suspicion. That’s a sad note to a life that was otherwise vibrant and quite successful since Brittany Murphy deserved a bit more than to be regarded by how she met her end. Unfortunately, the resulting autopsy that was deferred to begin with only made her demise and that of her husband, who passed only a short while later, appear even more suspicious. But the docuseries that’s coming to HBO Max won’t fixate entirely on the idea of how Murphy met her end, but how she lived and thrived in the spotlight up until her passing, which is a much more positive manner of looking at someone that brought quite a bit of joy to many people. It might sound like an attempt to remain blissfully ignorant, but at the same time, it’s an attempt to celebrate her life and allow the matter of her passing, which is close to 12 years in the past now, to finally settle as her successes are elevated above what some folks still see as a conspiracy.

Brittany Murphy Documentary Coming From HBO Max and Blumhouse

Brittany Murphy broke out in a big way with her scene-stealing turn in Clueless – her second credited acting performance, but her first real speaking part. She had real screen presence and it felt like she was at the beginning of what would be a long, interesting career. Tragically, Murphy died only 14 years after her big break, with her cause of death officially listed as pneumonia, at the way-too-young age of 32. Murphy’s sudden, premature death led to several different conspiracy theories that have unfortunately overshadowed her life and career. Now, a two-part HBO Max documentary will explore Murphy’s life – and will also attempt to tackle the mysterious circumstances surrounding her death.
