Lifetime pays tribute to Whitney Houston

Lifetime will celebrate the legacy of six-time Grammy winner Whitney Houston with "Remembering Whitney," airing Wednesday, Oct. 17 at 9 p.m. The one-hour special will feature "never-before-seen footage" of Whitney including interviews with the pop music icon, private home videos and family photos, as well as candid insights from family members, daughter Bobbi Kristina (Krissy) Brown, sister-in-law and manager Pat Houston, brother Gary Houston and mother Cissy Houston, a former Grammy Award-winning singer.

On Feb. 11, on the eve of the Grammy Awards, Houston, 48, was found dead in her hotel room at the Beverly Hills Hilton. The cause of death was determined to be accidental drowning, but heart disease and cocaine use were contributing factors, according to coroner's officials.

On Oct. 24 at 9 p.m., in the aftermath of her untimely passing, Lifetime will premiere the all-new "docuseries" "The Houstons: On Our Own," airing back-to-back episodes.

According to the network, the series will "chronicle those closest to the pop music icon," including Bobbi Kristina; Pat; Pat's daughter Rayah; Gary; Cissy and "family friend" Nick Gordon, as they try and pick up the pieces after her shocking death.

Throughout the 14 episodes half-hour series, viewers will see the Houston family as they come together to deal with the loss of Whitney and focus on Krissy, the 19 year-old daughter of Bobby Brown and Whitney, and the heir to her mother's estate.

"The Houstons: On Our Own" will follow Pat, Krissy's aunt, guardian, manager and executor of Whitney's estate, as she tries her best to keep the large family together, help Krissy deal with the loss of her mother in a healthy way, and "grow into a talented and beautiful young woman."
