March 3 (UPI) -- Showtime Documentary Films has confirmed its Whitney Houston documentary Whitney: Can I Be Me will premiere at New York's Tribeca Film Festival next month.
The Nick Broomfield-helmed movie will air on Showtime later this year.
"Nick is a bold storyteller with an acclaimed track record of provocative documentary filmmaking," Vinnie Malhotra, senior vice president of documentary and unscripted programming for Showtime Networks, said in a statement Thursday. "Showtime Documentary Films is excited to partner with him on this project, as he delves deep into the life of Whitney Houston to tell the real story behind the rise and fall of one of America's most iconic singers."
Houston was a six-time Grammy-winner whose bright career was eclipsed by years of drug addiction and erratic behavior. She accidentally drowned in a hotel bathtub, while intoxicated in 2012. She was 48.
