There’s a Heath Ledger Documentary Coming

It’s been over nine years since the world was left devastated by the tragic passing of Heath Ledger from an accidental overdose of prescription drugs.

But our love for the Aussie star is still very much alive.

And now, in honour of the Oscar-winning actor, who was 28 when he passed away in 2008, there is a new Spike-TV documentary titled ‘I Am: Heath Ledger’ and will air in May.

The documentary will take an inside look at the father-of-one’s life and feature talks from the people closest to him.

And will no doubt chronical his roles in movies ’10 Things I Hate About You’, ‘A Knight’s Tale’, ‘Brokeback Mountain’, and his last film ‘The Dark Knight’ – which he went on to win the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor posthumously for his role as the Joker.

Heath was found dead on January 22, 2008 at the age of 28, from an accidental overdose of prescription medication. 

He was living alone at a New York apartment at the time, having split from his girlfriend, actress Michelle Williams, in 2007. The couple, who met on the set of Brokeback Mountain in 2004, shared a daughter, Matilda, now 11.


Spike-TV has previously covered the likes of Chris Farley, JFK Jr and Steve McQueen.
