Since her death in 2012, Whitney Houston‘s story has easily become one of the most documented of all deceased celebrities thanks to a number of authorized and unauthorized recounts of her meteoric rise to fame, public and private demons, family life, and more.
Across books, films, documentaries, TV specials, reality shows, and more, a number of projects have been dedicated to Houston’s larger-than-life legacy since her untimely passing and that production timeline shows no signs of slowing.
Ahead of her first big screen biopic due Thanksgiving 2022 (as we reported here), Lifetime – the women’s network responsible for the Pop icon’s first posthumous made-for-TV biographical effort – is now unveiling a documentary in honor of the fallen star.
Titled ‘Whitney Houston & Bobbi Kristina: Didn’t We Almost Have It All,’ look inside for the official trailer and description:
Airing just days ahead of the 9th anniversary of her death, ‘Didn’t We Almost Have it All’ – monikered after Houston’s chart-topping 1987 hit – will explore her relationship with daughter, Bobbi Kristina, who died tragically in 2015.
“The two-hour documentary presents an in-depth look at the parallel lives of renowned singer Whitney Houston and her daughter Bobbi Kristina. Both faced similar struggles – living in the shadow of their famous mothers, criticized for their love choices and often used for their fame and fortune – and both turned to drugs and alcohol for relief from the pressures of being in the spotlight, before prematurely leaving the earth in the same tragic way.
In an emotional and candid look at the ups and downs of their personal stories, and a celebration of their lives, Whitney Houston & Bobbi Kristina offers intimate conversations with the friends and family that were closest to them.”
Produced by Entertainment One, the TV event will air February 6 at 8/7 CST.
