Ahead of its Showtime premiere on Wednesday, the network has debuted a new teaser for its upcoming Whitney Houston documentary, Whitney. “Can I Be Me .”
The trailer features archival footage of Whitney, as a voice is heard saying, “Whitney Houston died from a broken heart.”
The film, which first premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York in April, offers behind-the-scenes material, candid interviews from those who knew the singer, and performance footage — including many of Houston’s greatest hits . The doc promises to shed light on the late icon’s extraordinary career, as well as her struggles with fame, addiction, and her image as a pop star in the public eye.
A full-length trailer for the documentary was released a month ago.
Whitney. “Can I Be Me” airs on Showtime on Friday, August 25, at 9 p.m. ET.
