LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Jay Sebring, the Hollywood hairstylist murdered by Charles Manson's followers in 1969, will be the subject of a documentary directed by his nephew.

Anthony DiMaria hopes to have the as-yet-untitled project released in 2009. It will include interviews with Sebring's protege, Joe Torrenueva, former Los Angeles Times film critic Charles Champlin, and Debra Tate, younger sister of actress Sharon Tate, another Manson victim.

Sebring, a former boyfriend of Saron Tate, counted George Peppard, Frank Sinatra, Steve McQueen and Paul Newman among his clients, according to the book "Helter Skelter." He was 35 when he was shot once and stabbed seven times by Charles "Tex" Watson at Tate's Benedict Canyon home.
