“Surviving Jeffrey Epstein” filmmakers Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg are bringing music insider Dorothy Carvello’s tell-all book, “Anything For A Hit” to the screen.
Stern and Sundberg’s Break Thru Films will team up on the documentary series project with One Foot Forward Entertainment, Page Six has exclusively learned.
Carvello — who started out as Ahmet Ertegun’s secretary and became the first female A&R exec at Atlantic Records in the ‘80s — published an explosive exposé of the music biz in 2018 that dished on the industry’s widespread abuse and misogyny at the hands of outrageous execs. The tome also included insider anecdotes on Michael Jackson, Madonna, Steven Tyler, Bon Jovi, INXS and more.
According to producers of the upcoming docuseries, “The series will feature key interviews with major label executives and artists whose stories illustrate the power and sexual dynamics that are tied to success in the music world.”
Stern and Sundberg said in a statement: “Carvello’s singular perspective on the music industry — as a woman and as a key insider at a major label — offers a powerful lens that indicts and inspires in equal measure.”
One Foot Forward and MY Entertainment president Michael Yudin said of Stern and Sundberg, “Their original vision shines a light on a far too often ignored element of the music industry, making this story as timely as it is culturally important.” Matt Stroud is also a producer on the project.
Stern and Sundberg’s other credits include “Reversing Roe,” “Joan Rivers: Piece of Work,” “The Trials of Darryl Hunt” and “The Devil Came on Horseback.”
Carvello is also currently penning a novel about Nashville and country music.
She previously told us: “All the characters in the Nashville book will be recognizable. People will be guessing.” The music insider added, “Nashville is a hot market, but it’s a good ol’ boys network. They don’t want to let anyone else in, but they have to, because the business is getting bigger… There is such hypocrisy. [The execs] all belong to a church, and meanwhile they’re breaking every commandment.”
