Showtime has released a teaser trailer for the George Michael: Freedom documentary which will be screened next month.
The Channel 4 documentary film which was co-directed by George Michael will include never before seen archive footage, personal anecdotes from the star, celebrity interviews and home footage.
Michael was heavily involved in the creation of the film before he passed away at the end of 2016 with Freedom featuring narration from the late singer.
The documentary will focus on Michael’s life and career, focusing particularly on the peak of his fame in the ’80s and ’90s, reports Rolling Stone.
The lengthy battle between Michael and Sony Music is also presented in the documentary, with a first-person account of the now infamous proceedings.
