U.S. broadcaster Fox will air a concert documentary about Rihanna’s ’777′ tour on May 6.

Entitled Rihanna 777, the film will mix concert and behind-the-scenes footage shot during the seven-day, seven-city promotional tour the pop star embarked on last fall in support of her seventh studio album, Unapologetic.

Beginning on November 14, the “We Found Love” singer traveled with 256 fans and journalists to Mexico City, Toronto, Stockholm, Paris, Berlin, London and New York City, and performed a series of concerts in smaller-than-usual venues. The film is a coproduction between Rihanna’s Fenty Films, Love Live and Gravité Creative.

Rihanna will also executive produce and star in a 10-episode fashion reality competition series called Styled to Rock that will begin airing on the Style Network in the United States later this year.
