Official Press Release

# # #


Hollywood, Calif. – Sunday, June 10, 2018 – #NetflixFYSEE – Barbra Streisand and Netflix announced a new content deal today from the 2018 Netflix FYSee closing night celebration which featured Streisand in conversation with Jamie Foxx in support of Barbra: The Music… The Mem'ries… The Magic! Netflix audiences worldwide will soon enjoy a fresh selection of content from the Streisand library including award-winning My Name Is Barbra (1965), Color Me Barbra (1966), Barbra Streisand: A Happening in Central Park (1968), Barbra Streisand and Other Musical Instruments (1973), Barbra Streisand: The Concert (1994), and Barbra Streisand: Timeless (2001). Netflix is also thrilled to present a special edition of Barbra Streisand’s classic movie A Star Is Born (1976), including never-before-seen footage of Ms. Streisand performing an instrumental version of “Evergreen” for the first time, and added footage to the iconic “With One More Look At You/Watch Closely Now” medley finale.

Barbra Streisand appeared on stage with Jamie Foxx and participated in an hour-long question and answer with her concert duet partner. The Netflix FYSEE event (F.Y.C. stands for "For Your Consideration") was a press event prior to Emmy Award nominations. The audience was shown the Netflix concert special (being suggested for consideration in several "Variety Special" Emmy categories). Afterward, Jamie and Barbra took the stage.

Some of the interesting things that came out of their talk ....

Look for some new interviews with Barbra to promote all this:

The TV shows and A Star is Born should all be up on Netflix in the next few days, for the month of June.

Streisand fans have commented that they already own these TV shows on DVD. True, but .... in terms of Barbra's legacy, this is AMAZING news. Most fans under the age of 30 don't own a DVD player, and only want to stream TV shows. [It's been reported that 67% of millennials pay for between one and three streaming services.]

So ... these TV specials will reach an entirely new audience! The shows have never been on any digital platforms yet (iTunes, Amazon, etc.) The shows have also been worked on for superior picture and sound quality.

Streisand at Paleyfest

On the evening of Friday, March 16th, Barbra Streisand appeared in person at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

From the L.A. Times:

The event was the opening night for this year's annual PaleyFest, which honors current and veteran TV favorites .... Friday's salute kicked off with a generous montage of clips from Streisand's 1960s specials "My Name Is Barbra" and "Color Me Barbra," and her recent Netflix special, "Barbra: The Music ...The Mem'ries ...The Magic!" .... She was joined a few moments later by Ryan Murphy ("Glee," "American Horror Story"), the evening's moderator.

Many Streisand fans were lucky to attend the 2-hour evening. The clip montages were amazing (and generous in length).

You can read more about this amazing evening over at the Hollywood Reporter.

By the Way ...

Barbra wants to clarify that the early versions posted online of her interview with Variety (and the print copies) were not accurate. On Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, Barbra relayed:

For those of you who saw the print edition of Variety, there was a mistake in the transcript. I was talking about Hello, Dolly! - not Funny Girl - when I said I was miscast . I will forever love Funny Girl, and am grateful that I got the chance to play Fanny Brice.


Cover Girl, Barbra
