Netflix series The Andy Warhol Diaries sets out to illuminate the man behind the mystery through interviews with friends, collaborators, fans, and by means of his own words from his diaries.The series comes from executive producer Ryan Murphy and director Andrew Rossi. “This breathtakingly expansive, six-part portrait of a legend chronicles the remarkable life of Andy Warhol from the intimate vantage point offered by the artist’s own posthumously published diaries.
Beginning with his childhood in Pittsburgh, the series traces Warhol’s almost unbelievably diverse journey fluidly moving between mediums and through eras as an artist — both revered and reviled — director, publisher, TV producer, scene maker, celebrity, and much more,” reads the synopsis.Another voice telling the story is Warhol’s own — after a fashion.
To bring Warhol’s voice to life, the filmmakers used cutting-edge A.I. technology, Rossi explained to Entertainment Weekly. The director worked with Resemble AI to use its text-to-speech algorithm, which was capable of recreating Warhol’s native Pittsburgh accent and cadence.
