Spike TV says it plans to air the documentary "I Am Heath Ledger" on May 17, following its world premiere at New York's Tribeca Film Festival on April 23.
The 90-minute documentary from director-producer Derik Murray also will receive a limited, theatrical, nationwide release on May 3 via Fathom Events.
"I Am Heath Ledger provides an intimate look at Heath through the lens of his own camera, with a treasure trove of never-before-seen footage, as he films and often performs in his own personal journey -- extravagant in gesture and in action," a press release said.
"Through these personal home movies, we get a rare glimpse into his true character -- demonstrating his creative energy and unshakable willingness to take risks that instilled such an extraordinarily deep love and affection in the people that entered his life."
