A documentary about the life and death of New Hampshire native and photojournalist James Foley will air on HBO next month.

According to the Boston Globe, HBO Documentary Films has acquired stateside TV rights to "Jim: The James Foley Story."

The documentary will debut Feb. 6 on HBO, shortly after its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. 

Foley, a Rochester native, was executed by ISIS in 2014, two years after he was taken captive while reporting in Syria.

The film is directed by Brian Oakes, Foley's childhood friend.
