Showtime has confirmed their Whitney Houston documentary Whitney: Can I Be Me will premiere at New York’s Tribeca Film Festival next month and air on Showtime later this year.
Vinnie Malhotra, senior vice president of documentary and unscripted programming for Showtime Networks said, “Showtime Documentary Films is excited to partner with [Nick Broomfield] on this project, as he delves deep into the life of Whitney Houston to tell the real story behind the rise and fall of one of America’s most iconic singers.”
Houston was a 6-time Grammy winner whose career was eclipsed by years of drug addiction and erratic behavior. She accidentally drowned in a hotel bathtub in 2012. She was 48.
