A documentary about the beloved Heath Ledger will air this year, reports People magazine.

Ledger, who tragically passed away in 2008 after an accidental overdose, will be the subject of the Spike TV original series I Am.

 

I Am: Heath Ledger, will air on Spike TV in May, and will look at the actor's life. The Australian-born star of 10 Things I Know About You, The Patriot, Brokeback Mountain, and The Dark Knight, won a number of awards, with most coming from the 2005 drama Brokeback Mountain. However, after his death he went on to earn a lot of posthumous accolades, including a BAFTA, an Academy Award and a Golden Globe.

The documentary will include input from those in the Australian actor's 'inner circle' People magazine reports. 

It will apparently feature first hand accounts of people who knew and loved him. Previous subjects of the I Am series include, JFK Jr., Chris Farley and Bruce Lee.
