VIDEO: HBO Releases Full Trailer for Carrie Fisher, Debbie Reynolds Doc BRIGHT LIGHTS


In light of the recent and unexpected deaths of both Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, HBO announced last week that the documentary BRIGHT LIGHTS: STARRING Carrie Fisher AND Debbie Reynolds will debut earlier than scheduled, SATURDAY, JAN. 7 at 8:00 p.m. (ET/PT). Today, the cable network shared the full trailer for the documentary - check it out below!

The story of a family's complicated love, this documentary is 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.

BRIGHT LIGHTS: STARRING Carrie Fisher AND Debbie Reynolds has already received audience and critical acclaim at many prestigious film festivals, including the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, the Telluride Film Festival and the New York Film Festival.
