BOSTON (AP) — “America’s prince” is getting a new documentary.

“I Am JFK Jr. — A Tribute to a Good Man” hits select theaters July 22. It captures the fascination with John F. Kennedy, Jr., from his early days toddling around the White House to his death in a plane crash in 1999 off Martha’s Vineyard.

Network Entertainment’s Derik Murray made the film in the mold of his other “I Am” movies, including “I Am Bruce Lee,” ”I Am Chris Farley” and “I Am Evel Knievel.” It also airs on Spike TV Aug. 1, and a DVD release is set for Aug. 16.

The film captures JFK Jr. as “John John,” the tow-headed son of the late President John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. It chronicles his looks and career, and speculates whether he might have sought public office.
