Beyoncé is making an autobiographical movie y’all.
She is also set to direct and star in this documentary, which will premier February 16th on HBO. This special should take us more into her personal life and also give us a deep insight into her musical career; featuring live performances and self-recorded video footage of her and her family.
Michael Lombardo, HBO president of programming, said:
“Along with electrifying footage of Beyoncé onstage, this unique special looks beyond the glamour to reveal a vibrant, vulnerable, unforgettable woman.”

Back in August we heard that Beyonce would be directing and producing a film about her life and career, and now the documentary has a home at HBO. Bey took to Facebook today (November 26) to let her fans know the still-untitled documentary will premiere February 16 on the premium cable network.
The film will provide “raw, unprecedented access to the private entertainment icon and high-voltage performances,” giving “a multi-faceted portrait of the 16-time Grammy Award-winning singer, businesswoman, songwriter, actress, entrepreneur, wife and mother, showing off the extraordinary gifts that have made her a global phenomenon, and stripping away the veneer of stardom.”
The doc will include first-person footage (some shot by Bey herself) and home videos from her Houston childhood. ”Some of my favorite shows are on HBO, so I am excited that my film will be part of its bold programming,” said the singer. Her transition into motherhood after the birth of Blue Ivy will play a prominent part in the narrative, and while there was no mention of husband Jay-Z in the press release, we’re sure he’ll have a role as well.
