Pop superstar Beyonce is stepping behind the camera to
direct a behind-the-scenes documentary about her personal and
professional life, US cable channel HBO said.
The currently untitled film will debut on February 16 and
show the Grammy-winning singer's life in the recording
studio, readying for live performances and running her own TV
and music production company.
"Everybody knows Beyonce's music, but few know Beyonce the
person," HBO Programming President Michael Lombardo said in a
statement. "Along with electrifying footage of Beyonce on
stage, this unique special looks beyond the glamour to reveal
a vibrant, vulnerable, unforgettable woman."
The documentary will also feature moments in the "Crazy in
Love" singer's family life and first-person footage Beyonce
captured on her laptop.
Beyonce, 31, who is married to hip hop artist and mogul
Jay-Z, will headline the Super Bowl halftime show in New
Orleans on February 3.
