A four-part film about a star of 'I Got You (I Feel Good)' is being produced by an executive.

James Brown: Say It Loud has been ordered by a cable company, directed by Deborah Riley Draper, who is helming The Legacy of Black Wall Street.

After Alex Gibney directed Mr. Dynamite: The Rise of James Brown for HBO in 2014, Jagger was a producer on this project.

James Brown: Say It Loud is set to premiere in 2023, marking what would have been Brown's 90th birthday. It will examine Brown's legacy with interviews with friends, family, collaborators, and proteges, as well as his beloved music catalog, and includes never-before archival footage.

From a seventh-grade dropout accused for armed robbery in the Jim Crow-era South, it will trace his life to a entertainment legend.

Inaudible Films, which produced Mr. Dynamite: The Rise of James Brown, is working on docs about Curtis Mayfield and Jerry Lee Lewis in collaboration with Polygram Entertainment.

Draper directs and distributes in the Inaudible Films, along with producer Sarah Haber, Jagger, and Victoria Pearman exec produce for Jagged Films, Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson, who directed Oscar-nominated documentary Summer of Soul, and Tariq "Black Thought" Trotter, Shawn Gee, and Zarah Zohlman exec produce for Two One Five Entertainment, and David Blackman exec produce for Polygram Entertainment.

Elaine Frontain Bryant and Brad Abramson of the A&E Network work with Charlie Cohen, while Madeline Post and Robert Komadina co-exec produce.

"I am thrilled to be producing the four-part documentary series with A&E delving into James Brown's fascinating past," said Jagger. "He was a fantastic performer who inspired me from the beginning and was profoundly committed to the Civil Rights movement. I have always admired James and learned so much from him. I'm looking forward to seeing the series again. "

"The life of James Brown is significant not only to understand his immense musical impact, which we now anticipate and future artists, but also for his profound and lasting impact on American culture. Brown's life is a critical and timely tale of struggle, redemption, and self-identity, and we are honored to have the opportunity to share it."

Elaine Frontain Bryant, A&E's executive producer and producer, has said that "A&E has a long history as a home for bold, engaging, and insightful narratives that push boundaries and bring viewers deeper into their lives and worlds." Say It Loud: not only is it that extraordinary life of the Godfather of Soul, but also his immeasurable influence as a cultural force in American society."
