‘Dear Mom, Love Cher’ Lifetime Doc Announced
To celebrate Mother’s Day, Lifetime will premiere the documentary Dear Mom, Love Cher, revealing the extraordinary life story and perseverance of Cher’s mother, Georgia Holt, on Monday, May 6, at 10:00 p.m. PT/ET. The hour-long special is executive produced by Academy Award winner Cher, produced by Todd Hughes and written and directed by P. David Ebersole.
Dear Mom, Love Cher provides a rare peek into Cher’s fascinating family history and features in-depth interviews with Holt, her daughters Cher and Georganne LaPiere Bartylak, and grandchildren Chaz Bono and Elijah Blue Allman.
The documentary begins with Holt’s humble beginnings in rural Arkansas, where she first dreamt of stardom as a little girl and continues through her six tumultuous marriages while pursuing a career among Hollywood’s elite as a singer and actress. Holt endures a series of dramatic personal and professional triumphs and setbacks but survived and overcame the odds — no matter the challenge – to successfully raise two loving daughters. One of the daughters would live out the dream Holt could never fulfill for herself and go on to become one of the world’s biggest stars.
Dear Mom, Love Cher includes unprecedented access to the family and features a never-before-heard duet performance with Holt and Cher, along with the long-lost recordings Holt taped more than three decades ago that Cher has re-mastered for commercial release later this year, making her mother’s lifelong dream a reality.
