Beyonce will air series of short performances on HBO with 'True Blood'

Beyonce will air four-minute performances from her recent world tour over 10 weeks on HBO with 'True Blood'

Beyoncé is coming back to HBO, but instead of airing another music concert special, she's doing something a little different.

Beginning June 29, the premium cable channel will air "Beyonce: X10," a series of four-minute performances taken from recently completed Mrs. Carter Show world tour.

The episodes will include Beyoncé's performances of "Blow/Cherry," "Drunk in Love," "Ghost/Haunted," "Flawless/Yoncé," "Get Me Bodied/Baby Boy/Diva," "Girls," "Heaven," "Partition," "Why Don’t You Love Me?" and "XO."

Each new episode will air immediately before a new episode of "True Blood" on Sunday nights.

Beyoncé's last special for HBO was the 2013 autobiographical documentary film she directed, "Life Is But a Dream," which combined behind-the-scenes footage, private home movies and concert footage from her four-night revue in Atlantic City. 

The first airing of the film had an audience of 1.8 million, which was the largest audience the channel had seen for a documentary in nearly 10 years.
