Cher (pictured, left) serves as the executive producer of Dear Mom, Love Cher, an hour-long doc on the life of her mother Georgia Holt (right), which is set to air on U.S. cable network Lifetime.

Premiering on May 6 at 10 p.m. EST/PST, the doc will offer a look at Cher’s family history, beginning with Holt’s early years in rural Arkansas, leading to her six marriages and dreams of becoming a singer and an actor.

Produced by The Ebersole Hughes Company and APIS Productions, Dear Mom, Love Cher features interviews with Holt, her daughters Cher and Georganne LaPiere Bartylak, and grandchildren Chaz Bono and Elijah Blue Allman; as well as a never-before-heard duet between Cher and Holt.

In the Lifetime statement, Cher details how the project began as a gift for Holt’s 86th birthday. “My sister and I are proud of our mom and we want to share her with the world,” she said.

Rob Sharenow, exec VP of programming at Lifetime Networks, added: “When we found out Cher, one of the world’s most iconic stars, wanted to make a film about her mother, we jumped at the chance to partner with her.

“The film offers an extraordinary glimpse into this private family and we discover that Georgia Holt, like her daughter, is a very talented and fascinating woman.”

Dear Mom, Love Cher is exec produced by P. David Ebersole, Todd Hughes, Risa Shapiro and Lifetime’s Tanya Lopez.
