One new one-hour special and a new documentary about Carrie Fisher and her mother will air very soon for fans of both Fisher and her mother. The one-hour Carrie Fisher special will air tonight on ABC, while the documentary airs next week on HBO.
The one-hour special, anchored by Elizabeth Vargas, provides a look at the careers and legacies of Fisher and Reynolds, their complex relationship, the highs and lows of Reynolds’ memorable career, and Fisher’s life in Hollywood as well as tributes from family and friends.
Debbie and Carrie: A Hollywood Love Story airs Friday at 10 p.m. ET/ 9 p.m. CT on ABC. The previously-scheduled episode Footprints in the Snow will air at a later date.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the documentary about the relationship between Carrie Fisher and her mother Debbie Reynolds has been moved up.
HBO’s buzzy Bright Lights documentary is being moved up to a January 7 air date after the passing of its subjects, Hollywood icons Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds.
The premium cable channel had originally planned to air the documentary in March. The project, directed by Alexis Bloom and Fisher Stevens, premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in May, where Fisher promoted the title.
These might prove to be fairly cathartic for fans to watch. During this time it will be nice to see the love that they had for each other, and to share one more memory with our Princess.
