Long live Whitney.

Three years after Whitney Houston‘s untimely death, there’s a new documentary in the works about her life. The film, Whitney, will be directed by Nick Broomfield and premiere on BBC Two. The network says Whitney will explore “the forces that made and destroyed the singer.”

Broomfield’s past work includes his most famous documentary, Kurt and Courtney, which chronicled the relationship between Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love. Love ultimately brought legal action again Broomfield over the film’s focus on allegations that she played a role in Cobain’s death.

Hopefully, Whitney will remain largely free of controversy. After all, her fans will hold it to a high standard.

A release date has yet to be set.
