Rashida Jones and Alan Hicks co-directed Emmy-contending doc on music great
"Is Ted here?" Quincy Jones asked, at a reception following a screening Friday night of the Netflix documentary Quincy about his remarkable life and career.
He was referring to Ted Sarandos, chief content officer for the streaming platform. Turned out Ted didn't make it, but a soundstage full of Quincy admirers did make it there, along with Q's daughter, actress Rashida Jones, who co-directed the film with Alan Hicks.
The event was held at the Netflix "FYSEE" soundstage on the Raleigh Studios lot in Hollywood, where the company is holding a series of screenings for its Emmy-contending projects, including The Umbrella Academy, Springsteen on Broadway and the comedy special Ellen DeGeneres: Relatable.
Quincy, 86, listened as Rashida and Alan saluted his accomplishments with a toast. Watch it here.
