Susan Boyle to be subject of one-hour TV special

Susan Boyle, who became an instant singing sensation over the summer with her performance on Britain’s Got Talent, will be the subject of a TV Guide Channel documentary I Dreamed a Dream: The Susan Boyle Story, via a report Yahoo News.

The hour-long program, set to air at 8pm EST on Dec. 13, will trace Boyle’s rise from a small Scottish village to international fame, and feature interviews with both Simon Cowell and the singer herself, as well as friends and celebrities.

According to a report yesterday in Reuters, Boyle appears set to have the biggest album in the U.K. this year. A spokesman for retail chain HMV said the 48-year-old was on course for first-day sales of nearly 150,000 copies in Britain, and could easily hit 400,000 by week’s end, making it the fastest selling release there this year.
