HBO moves up airing of ‘Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds’ to January 7
HBO had planned to air a new documentary, Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, in March. Now, following their deaths, the film has been moved up to Jan. 7 (8 p.m. ET/PT), HBO announced Friday.
The film had been received warmly at Cannes Film Festival, Telluride Film Festival and the New York Film Festival. It is described as a story of complicated family love and “an intimate portrait of Hollywood royalty in all its eccentricity,” featuring vintage family films from the Old Hollywood era. The film was directed by Alexis Bloom and Fisher Stevens and I think their fans will really appreciate seeing it now.
