Prince was in talks with Netflix for a show before his shocking death earlier this year.

"We did have discussions about it, but sadly for all of us it did not come to fruition prior to his passing," a rep for the streaming service confirmed to Vulture.

The series would have centered around Prince's life and his company at his Minnesota compound.

The show was first mentioned in a new interview with the artist's friend Maya Washington, who told GQ she had discussed it with him and claimed he didn't want to appear on camera.

He was supposed to do something with Netflix, a reality show on Paisley Park. He's, "Why don't you help me?" I'm, "I'd love to, but you'd have to be in it." And he's, "No, no, no, I'm not in it." I'm, "Why not? You're so funny—why don't you want anyone to see your sense of humor?" And he would shut it down: "Maya, I can't be funny. I have to save the world."
