Showtime 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 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 August 25th. It originally was scheduled to bow August 26th, but that’s the now-settled date for the Floyd Mayweather Jr-Conor McGregor fight that will air on Showtime PPV live from Las Vegas.
Whitney Houston died February 11, 2012. She was 48.
