Betty White sadly passed away at the age of 99. This was weeks before she was set to have her 100th birthday celebration, which included a one-night-only Betty White documentary. The documentary is aptly named, Betty White: 100 Years Young — A Birthday Celebration. Although the world has lost the titan of comedy and television, the documentary is set to go ahead on January 17th. The world will still get to see inside stories and behind-the-scenes footage of White’s legendary and groundbreaking career.

Mega fans of Betty White can go to Fathom events and secure their ticket to see the Betty White documentary, which is sure to be tons of fun and honor such a great human being. Producers, Steve Boettcher and Mike Trinklein, summed up what it was like to make this documentary perfectly “We are thankful for the many decades of delight she brought to everyone. Betty always said she was the ‘luckiest broad on two feet’ to have had a career as long as she did. And honestly, we were the lucky ones to have had her for so long.” You can check out the trailer for the documentary below.

The Betty White documentary is set to have friends of White speak about her legendary career and share inside stories of what made her one of the most beloved people in all of television. From her run on The Mary Tyler Moore Show, SNL, The Golden Girls, and countless others, she was always a riot in everything that she touched. The documentary is set to have Ryan Reynolds, Tina Fey, Robert Redford, Lin Manuel-Miranda, Clint Eastwood, Morgan Freeman, Jay Leno, Carol Burnett, Craig Ferguson, Jimmy Kimmel, Valerie Bertinelli, James Corden, Wendy Malick, and Jennifer Love Hewitt all speak on White and her impact on the world.

The one-night-only Betty White documentary will still go ahead as planned on January 17th and will still contain what was supposed to be live footage of White celebrating her 100th birthday. This is truly a great way for her memory to be honored, and fans around the world can still join in celebrating one of the most incomparable women to ever grace our screens. White has certainly been a trailblazer unlike any other. The collective internet and world have been mourning her death and the thousands of tributes have flooded social media with her excellence.

Betty White began her career in the early 1960s by becoming the “First Lady” of game shows circuit, and that spawned her decades-long career where she became a mainstay on television shows across the years, becoming one of the most beloved people to ever work in showbusiness. The Betty White documentary is set to show all of this and much more as celebrities from every era will speak on how White changed the world by just being herself. Ryan Reynolds is one such person who speaks on her greatness, and he posted a short yet moving tribute in honor of the actress that he has revered for so long.

The Betty White documentary is set to release on January 17th. In the wake of her death, the hope is that the producers will attempt to keep the documentary going on for longer than just one night. We could all use a dose of Betty.
