HBO has released the first full trailer for Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, which will now make its debut on the cable network January 7 at 8 PM ET; check local listings. Watch it above.
Following the tragic and unexpected deaths of mother-and-daughter artists Reynolds and Fisher on successive days this week, HBO moved up the documentary’s premiere.
The documentary, a “story of a family’s complicated love,” is described as “an intimate portrait of Hollywood royalty in all its eccentricity. Carrie Fisher and her mother, Debbie Reynolds, live in the same Beverly Hills compound. The 83-year-old grand dame still has a Las Vegas act, but performing is taking its toll. Carrie’s response is both hilarious and heart-rending. Featuring vintage family films that bring iconic old-world Hollywood to life, as well as extensive vérité footage, the film is directed by Alexis Bloom and Fisher Stevens.”
