HBO announced Monday that a documentary about Grammy-winning singer Beyonce will debut Feb. 16. Beyonce is directing the film, which will include footage she shot herself with her laptop.
The network said the documentary will include “video that provides raw, unprecedented access to the private entertainment icon and high-voltage performances.” It will also feature home videos of her family and of the singer as a new mother and owner of her company, Parkwood Entertainment.
Beyonce is married to Jay-Z. They had their first child, daughter Blue Ivy Carter, in January.
The 31-year-old will perform at the 2013 Super Bowl halftime show on Feb. 3
Future of ‘Dallas’?
With a premiere that drew nearly 7 million viewers in the summer, TNT’s splashy Dallas reboot seemed primed for success in its second life. The cable series — in which Larry Hagman reprised his role as the legendary Texas oilman J.R. Ewing — was slated to return for a second season Jan. 28.
Hagman’s unexpected death at age 81 on Friday, however, leaves the future of the show in question.
Sources close to Dallas who asked for anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly said that Hagman had completed filming on several new episodes before his death and would appear in Season 2.
But the sources also acknowledged that the show’s producers hadn’t yet established how they would address J.R.’s departure from the cable series, which was widely thought to revolve around Hagman’s portrayal.
The show’s writers and producers are said to be working to give his character a proper send-off.
At the time of its June debut, Dallas scored the No. 1 scripted series premiere on cable in 2012.
