The previous first and second subject of the series are Bruce Lee (2012) and "Saturday Night Live" star Chris Farley (2015) respectively.
Ledger died at 28 on January 22, 2008 from an accidental mixture of prescription drugs.

The show was also excerpted from the diary that the actor, who shared a daughter named Matilda with Williams, kept during the filming of "The Dark Night".
