In the wake of this week’s tragic deaths of Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, HBO has moved up the premiere of its documentary about the Hollywood icons.

Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds will debut on Saturday, Jan. 7 at 8/7c, the cabler announced early Friday. The film tells the “story of a family’s complicated love, offering an “intimate portrait of Hollywood royalty in all its eccentricity. Carrie Fisher and her mother, Debbie Reynolds, live in the same Beverly Hills compound. The 83-year-old grand dame still has a Las Vegas act, but performing is taking its toll. Carrie’s response is both hilarious and heart-rending.” © Provided by TVLine

The doc — which bowed to enthusiastic reviews at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival — features “vintage family films that bring iconic old-world Hollywood to life, as well as extensive vérité footage,” per HBO.

The 84-year-old Reynolds and the 60-year-old Fisher died one day apart, with the former suffering a stroke and the latter felled by a heart attack.
