Quincy Jones is teaming up with former Academy chief, Cheryl Boone Isaacs, to produce a documentary about the Black Hollywood experience. Jones spoke to The Hollywood Reporter at the Ischia Film and Music Festival and said, "We’re in the process of starting to do a documentary now called American Film: The Black Experience. Boone Isaacs invited me to be co-producer with her. I’m very excited about that."

Boone Isaacs also spoke on the documentary, saying that she wanted "to get the story out of the contributions that have been made by so many, not just the celebrities, which even that backstory has not been told enough; and the relationship among folks and growing and working together in order to improve."

She added, "I think what is important is the backstory of us in the entertainment business, whether it’s film, music or television."
