The late Princess Diana will be the subject of not one but two primetime specials on ABC.  On Thursday, the network announced a two-hour telecast for May that will exclusively look at the last 100 days of her life before she died from injuries sustained in a car crash in August 1997. 

The Last 100 Days of Diana, hosted by former Nightline co-anchor Martin Bashir, will look at her only summer as a single woman, when she was newly divorced from Prince Charles and romantically involved with British Pakistani surgeon Hasnat Khan and Dodi al-Fayed, the latter of whom also died in the crash.

Bashir won a BAFTA award in 1996 for his extended interview with the princess of Wales. The two-hour special will include rare interviews with close friends and her personal staff, including her former butler, chef, bodyguard, press secretary and trainer, to reveal her mind-set as she navigated a new life, one that was still firmly in the public eye.

 The special will air Sunday, May 7 at 9 p.m.
