Whitney Houston to be profiled by Nick Broomfield in new Showtime documentary
The fascination with Whitney Houston continues.
Showtime’s documentary films division has announced production of a film exploring the award-winning career and complicated life of the singer and actress.
The project will be produced, directed and narrated by filmmaker Nick Broomfield, who has developed several attention-getting documentaries, including “Kurt & Courtney” and “Tales of the Grim Sleeper”).
The film, which will shoot in Los Angeles, will feature interviews with key people in Houston’s life to create what the premium network said in a statement is “an indelible portrait of the artist.”
Houston, a six-time Grammy winner, was one of the most successful female recording artists of all time. After a troubled marriage to singer Bobby Brown and many years of struggles with addiction, she died in 2012 after drowning in a bathtub following what authorities said was drug intoxication. She was 48.
The film will include footage of Houston performing some of her greatest hits, including “I Will Always Love You” and “I Wanna Dance With Somebody.”
