HBO has announced that it has picked up the U.S. TV rights to David Bowie: The Last Five Years, a BBC documentary directed by Francis Whately that we last heard about back in November. According to a press release, the film will include “a wealth of rarely seen Bowie interviews, archival footage, audio from the recording sessions for The Next Day and Blackstar, and unprecedented access to Bowie’s closest friends and artistic collaborators.” In addition to examining the work that went into those two aforementioned albums, it will also detail the musical Blackstar, with appearances from that show’s cast members and “a unique behind-the-scenes look at Bowie’s creative process.”

A U.S. premiere date for The Last Five Years has not been announced.
