The indiewire.com blog, Shadow & Act claims that Lifetime will air a 1-hour special, Remembering Whitney on October 17 starting at 8pm. This will be followed by a new docu-series The Houstons: On Our Own at 9pm.
The Houstons: On Our Own follows the lives of the late R&B and pop singer’s family, starting with Pat Houston, Whitney’s sister-in-law and manager, and Pat’s daughter Rayah, Whitney’s brother Gary, daughter Bobbi Kristina and mother, Grammy® Award-winning singer Cissy Houston. Those closest to Houston try to pick up the pieces after her untimely death. As the series follows Pat and her husband, Gary (Whitney’s brother), viewers will watch them take on their greatest challenge, supporting and guiding Bobbi Kristina, who now faces the world without the one person she relied on the most, her Mother.
