Beyonce to Star in HBO Documentary About Beyonce
The multihyphenate entertainer will also direct the telepic, which will premiere in February.
Beyoncé is the subject of a new HBO documentary that she's also directing, the cable network announced Monday.
The film will premiere Feb. 16, and combines footage of her onstage performances with private behind-the-scenes moments shot by Beyoncé herself.
"HBO has a history of pushing every boundary with class and authenticity," said the 16-time Grammy winner (and mother of Blue Ivy Carter, who turns 1 in January) in a statement. "Some of my favorite shows are on HBO, so I am excited that my film will be part of its bold programming. This film was so personal to me, it had to have the right home."
The film, which Beyoncé also executive produces, "sheds light on her childhood in Houston, with home movies revealing the close bond she built with her family and charts the challenges Beyoncé felt when she decided to manage her career and build her own company, Parkwood Entertainment," HBO said.
The notoriously private singer has been coming out of her shell of late: over the weekend, the 31-year-old shared a new photo of her cuddling with 11-month-old Blue Ivy on her personal Tumblr. Another image shows husband Jay-Z walking down a path carrying the baby. In honor of the holiday, she also posted a picture of a handwritten note that read: "From my family to yours. Wishing you a happy and healthy Thanksgiving. Beyoncé."
Beyonce is repped by ICM Partners.
