Showtime Will Produce a Whitney Houston Documentary

Showtime Documentary Films has announced the start of a project examining the life and career of legendary singer Whitney Houston.

Deadline reports that production kicked off this week.

Houston was a six-time Grammy Award-winning recording artist whose tragic death in 2012 at the age of 48 shocked the world. The documentary will include behind-the-scenes footage and new interviews with subjects to “offer a raw and uncensored look at Houston and explore the impact her life and death had on the people around her and on the world of music,” according to Showtime.

Many aspects of Houston’s personal life were controversial, including her troubled marriage to Bobby Brown and drug addictions. Her extraordinary career highlights include selling an estimated 200 million albums and singles and landing seven consecutive No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 hits. She starred in the 1992 romance “The Bodyguard,” which grossed over $400 million worldwide.
