Beyoncé to Executive Produce, Direct, Star in Film About Her Life
What's this? Bey-season is upon us. HBO announced today it will air a feature-length documentary film based on the life and career of Mrs Carter on Feb. 16, 2013. Mrs Carter will serve as director and executive producer and HBO said the film will offer unprecedented access to the singer's life; the finished product will include material shot by Mrs Carter on her laptop, along with concert footage, home movies and other material. "Everybody knows Beyoncé's music, but few know Beyoncé the person," said Michael Lombardo, president, HBO programming in a statement. "Along with electrifying footage of Beyoncé onstage, this unique special looks beyond the glamour to reveal a vibrant, vulnerable, unforgettable woman." This film airs mere days after Mrs Carter's epic (you know it's going to be) Super Bowl half-time performance, so we can bet a new single or album will be released that month.
