ABC is set to air a documentary miniseries about Princess Diana, which will premiere in August to coincide with the 20th anniversary of her death, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

As of now, the project is untitled, but it will air in two parts, each of which will be two hours long. The special will focus on Princess Di’s life and her lasting legacy. 

ABC and Time Inc.’s People will co-produce the series, which will include interviews with people who knew the late royal as well as “leading Diana experts,” according to The Hollywood Reporter. The outlet notes that People’s reporting will be included throughout clips of interviews, along with archival footage. 

People’s editor-in-chief Jess Cagle told THR that the magazine’s audience continues to be highly interested in the royal family.

Our audience has an insatiable appetite for news about the royal family; in fact, they are just as fascinated today as they were when Lady Diana was first introduced to the world back in 1981,” she said in a statement. 

The former Princess of Wales died on August 31, 1997, due to injuries suffered in a car accident. She was only 36.
