Beyonce As You’ve Never Seen Her Before: New Documentary To Air February

Get ready to get up close and personal with Beyonce. A forthcoming documentary about the singer and her extraordinary life is coming to the small screen.

The feature length film will present exclusively on HBO on February 16, 2013. The 16-times Grammy award winner is not only starring in the documentary, she’s also directing and executive producing it.

Pitched as a chance for viewers to see behind the curtain on the star’s private life and public performances, the film should interest not only Beyonce fans but celebrity voyeurs in general.

Speaking about the project, Michael Lombardo, HBO programming president said:

“Everybody knows Beyonce’s music, but few know Beyonce the person. Along with electrifying footage of Beyonce onstage, this unique special looks beyond the glamour to reveal a vibrant, vulnerable, unforgettable woman.”

Variety reports that Beyonce released a statement saying some of her “favorite shows are on HBO” and that the network “has a history of pushing every boundary with class and authenticity.”

The Texan native continued, “I am excited that my film will be part of its bold programming. This film was so personal to me, it had to have the right home.”

News that Beyonce and her representatives were shopping a ‘warts and all’ documentary to Hollywood studios first surfaced in August. As of today, we all now know that home became HBO.
