The stage show first premiered back in 2006, and on June 25, it was taped for HBO.

During the performance, topics include the break-up of her parents in the late 50's, her Star Wars days and her battle with mental health issues.

At the Television Critics Association Summer Session, Carrie had this to say about the project:

    “A lot of the stuff I talk about, when the things happened at the time, I was too ashamed to talk about. So there’s a great relief in being able to just own this and have it be something that happened and that I learned from and wasn’t defeated by. If I can do that — and some of the stuff was really hard — then anybody can [do it].”
