Watch: First Look At New George Michael Documentary
Showtime announced the latest installment in its music documentaries will spotlight the late GRAMMY winner George Michael. Titled George Michael: Freedom, the cable network released the first trailer offering an inside look at Michael's life and music.
While the film will cover Michael's entire life, it focuses on the period leading up to his second solo album, Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1, and the pressure he felt following up his diamond-certified GRAMMY-winning debut solo album, 1987's Faith.
Freedom includes narration from Michael himself, giving viewers an intimate look at his professional and private life, along with archival and private home footage. GRAMMY winners such as Elton John, Mark Ronson, Stevie Wonder, Mary J. Blige, and Tony Bennett have been tapped to weigh in on Michael's influential career as well.
George Michael: Freedom debuts on Showtime on Oct. 21 at 9 p.m. ET.
