Partnering with Netflix, Inc.'s division Red Envelope Entertainment, Clint Eastwood has eagerly signed himself to executive produce a documentary exploring and celebrating the life and career of the legendary recording artist and concert performer, Tony Bennett, Netflix itself has officially announced.

"The coming together of Tony Bennett and Clint Eastwood -- two enduring and iconic figures in the world of American entertainment -- is a cultural flashpoint," Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos commented. "Netflix spearheading this prestigious project showcases our abilities to bring unique content to our subscribers and, in this case, a global audience."
