NBC to tell 'Farrah's Story'

Documentary chronicles actress' battle with cancer

NBC is readying "Farrah's Story," a two-hour documentary chronicling actress Farrah Fawcett's two-and-a-half-year battle with cancer.

The doc, shot with Fawcett's own video recorder, will air May 15.

In a video diary format, Farrah shares her thoughts and feelings as well as accounts of her treatments in the U.S. and Germany.

"This film is very personal," Fawcett said during filming. "At the time, I didn't know if anybody would ever see it. But at some point, the footage took on a life of its own and dictated that it be seen."

Also featured in the documentary are Fawcett's longtime companion Ryan O'Neal, Jaclyn Smith, Kate Jackson and Farrah's father, Jim Fawcett, as well as her team of doctors.

Fawcett's close friend Alana Stewart shot most of the video and serves as co-producer.

Farrah Fawcett, Craig Nevius and Alexandra Gleysteen are executive producing.
