The life and career of Patrick Swayze will be highlighted in a forthcoming documentary on the late star.
I Am Patrick Swayze will explore the actor’s childhood in Texas, his rise to stardom, and his relationship with widow Lisa Niemi, who he married in 1975.
The project will feature interviews with his former co-stars from films, such as Ghost and Dirty Dancing, including Sam Elliott, Jennifer Grey, Demi Moore, Rob Lowe, and Kelly Lynch, as well as Niemi and Patrick’s brother, Don Swayze.
The release is part of Paramount Network’s I Am series, which has previously chronicled the lives of late stars Paul Walker, Heath Ledger, Richard Pryor, and Steve McQueen.
I Am Patrick Swayze will debut at the San Antonio Film Festival on Aug. 2 and air in the U.S. on the Paramount Network on Aug. 18 to mark Swayze’s birthday. In Canada, it will air on Crave.
The star died of pancreatic cancer in 2009, at the age of 57.
