Heath Ledger will be the subject of a new TV documentary, I Am: Heath Ledger, to air in May 2017.

It has been a little over nine years since the actor’s tragic death at age 28 from an accidental overdose of prescription drugs.

Ledger, the Australian-born star of 10 Things I Know About You, The Patriot, Brokeback Mountain, and The Dark Knight, among others, was beloved for his rugged handsomeness, as well his low-key demeanour.

He was often seen skateboarding down streets of his Brooklyn neighbourhood, and strolling with Matilda, the young daughter he had with actor Michelle Williams.

Now his story will be told in Spike’s original documentary series, I Am — which is an inside look at the lives of unique individuals as told by those in their inner circle, reported People magazine.

Previous subjects have included, JFK Jr., Chris Farley and Bruce Lee.
