Is there anything more soothing than watching the great Bob Ross paint some plein air scenes? We’d like to think there isn’t. Perhaps what it is, aside from Bob’s super soothing voice and positive vibe, is the wholesome view we all have of the late presenter.
What most fans DON’T know is the very true backstory of the man behind “The Joy Of Painting.” Which is about to change, thanks to director Joshua Rofé, and his upcoming Netflix documentary film, “Bob Ross: Happy Accidents, Betrayal & Greed.”
This morning, Netflix revealed the first trailer, some images, and a synopsis for the film, which you can check out below.
“Bob Ross: Happy Accidents, Betrayal & Greed brings us the shockingly untold story of the prolific landscape artist and host of The Joy of Painting. With a keen appreciation for nature, and a kind and gentle demeanor, Bob Ross encouraged everyone he met to embrace their creativity and believe in themselves, becoming a cultural phenomenon along the way. The man who famously said that there were no mistakes – just happy accidents – has brought sheer delight to the world for decades. Beyond the iconic hair, soothing voice and nostalgic paintings lies a mystery that many have yet to discover.“
“Bob Ross: Happy Accidents, Betrayal & Greed” is set to hit Netflix exclusively on August 25th, 2021.
