One Direction fan documentary coming to Channel 4

By
Channel 4 has ordered a new one-off documentary about One Direction fans.

I Heart One Direction will take a look at the boyband's fervent fanbase, known as 'Directioners'.

One Direction This Is Us


The 60-minute feature will also explore how social media - including Twitter and Facebook - has enabled the group's fans to form an online community and interact with their idols.

Award-winning director Daisy Asquith will helm I Heart One Direction, which will air on Channel 4 later this summer as part of the documentary strand Cutting Edge.

Emma Cooper, Commissioning Editor at Channel 4, said: "I am incredibly excited about this Cutting Edge film and proud to call myself a fellow 'Directioner'.

"It's brilliant to have Daisy Asquith involved who I know will make a young and joyful documentary that will give a voice to the millions of the 1D fans who love and follow them obsessively."

One Direction's Harry Styles was recently mobbed by fans in Paris - hundreds swarmed the 19-year-old when he attempted to walk from the doors of his hotel to a waiting vehicle.

Filmmaker Morgan Spurlock is currently working on a concert movie featuring One Direction - 'This Is Us' will be released in 3D at cinemas on August 29 in the UK, and a day later in the US.
