Following the unexpected and tragic news of the deaths of both Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, Sky Atlantic will broadcast the HBO documentary Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds on Tuesday 10 January at 9.00pm.

Joining the mother and daughter pair as they share the same Beverly Hills compound, the documentary is an intimate portrait of the eccentric and touching bond between the two members of Hollywood royalty in what would be their last years together.

Filmed while 83-year-old Singin’ in the Rain legend Reynolds was appearing in her Las Vegas show, the documentary provides a glimpse of the toll taken by her exhausting work schedule, as well as Star Wars princess Fisher’s sometimes hilarious, sometimes heart-rending reaction to it. The film also includes vintage family movies and archive vérité footage as it celebrates the lives and careers of these two extraordinary women.
