Netflix shared a trailer for its Bob Ross documentary coming later in August, but the trailer certainly does not show us much.
Bob Ross was a legendary person who got a lot of people into painting with his programs. His soothing voice and easygoing personality attracted many young people. He was the source of inspiration for many good people in our generation. As a result, he’s gathered a huge international fan base being a wholesome personality. Many fans still want to watch some content about this good-natured painter, so Netflix will give us a documentary on Bob Ross.
However, the documentary does not seem like it’ll be as wholesome as the programs of Bob Ross. We’re used to watching him paint some natural landscapes, but it’ll not be the case this time. Fame brings money, and money brings conflict. The documentary will focus on the battle over his successful business empire, as we can understand from the title, Bob Ross: Happy Accidents, Betrayal & Greed. Yeah, we’re sure that betrayal and greed were not part of The Joy of Painting. Nevertheless, it was a part of the life of Bob Ross, who was inevitably in talks with big TV companies handling a lot of money. So, instead of watching the good and wholesome, we’ll now see the dark side of the actual product.
What is the synopsis of the Bob Ross documentary?
Here’s what Netflix says about the Bob Ross documentary. Even though many fans are anxious as they think Netflix will turn Bob Ross into a villain, it’s probably the other way around.
“Beyond the iconic hair, soothing voice, and nostalgic paintings lie a mystery that many have yet to discover. Bob Ross brought joy to millions as the world’s most famous art instructor. But a battle for his business empire cast a shadow over his happy trees.”
The documentary will be an hour and 32 minutes long.

Netflix Studios and Number 19 are the production companies behind this documentary.
