The highly anticipated two-part documentary What Happened, Brittany Murphy? will premiere both episodes in November on Binge.
Directed by Emmy-nominated Cynthia Hill (Private Violence) the documentary explores the mysterious death of actress Brittany Murphy.
Murphy was a captivating actress as effervescent on-screen as she was off. She was a rising star whose movies including 8 Mile and Clueless stand the test of time.

The Klan, Pray Away) and James Buddy Day (Fall River).
