Project Description: This is a series in development with consultation from Chealsea Dawn, Buddy’s daughter. It is a series written from never before heard or seen files and stories from Buddy and many of those he worked with in the industry, including Buddy’s accounts of friendship and relationship with the late Jimi Hendrix.
This will be an episodic with flashbacks, flash forwards, and fictional interviews of Buddy and some of the greatest artists of our time and what they had to say about working with and being a part of Buddy’s life.
Small Circles is a true biopic, but spans across the many years Buddy had in the industry and his life outside of music.
We will be casting for some roles for older versions, for future episodes of some roles as well.
