Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

Heath Ledger will be the subject of a new Spike-TV documentary, "I Am: Heath Ledger", to air in May 2017.

It has been a little over nine years since the actor's tragic death at age 28 from an accidental mixture of prescription drugs.

Ledger, the Australian-born star of 10 "Things I Know About You", "The Patriot", "Brokeback Mountain", and "The Dark Knight, among others, was beloved for his rugged handsomeness, as well his low-key demeanor.

He was often seen skateboarding down streets of his neighborhood, and strolling with Matilda, the young daughter he had with actress Michelle Williams.

Now his story will be told in Spike's original documentary series, "I Am" - which is an inside look at the lives of unique individuals as told by those in their inner circle, reported People magazine.

Previous subjects have included, JFK Jr., Chris Farley and Bruce Lee.
