The documentary 'I Am Paul Walker' premieres Aug. 11.

The trailer for Paramount Network's new documentary I Am Paul Walker, a feature-length look into the late Fast and Furious star's life through the lens of his family and friends, has debuted. The film will chronicle Walker's early life, leading up to his Hollywood fame and his death in 2013, using archival footage with interviews.

"Cinema didn't capture it all. It couldn't capture it all," Fast and the Furious director Bob Cohen says in the trailer.

Walker's Hollywood career has been well documented, but his upbringing in the San Fernando Valley was less publicized. The documentary details the actor's wish to keep his personal life private, a life that included a Golden Glove champion father, Walker's fascination for marine biology and his passion for surfing and auto racing.

In the trailer, Paul's brother Caleb unveils that the Varsity Blues star never wanted to be in the spotlight to begin with, and that he had told his family he would be happy being a park ranger and live in the wilderness. "That's really what he wanted to do," Caleb said.

The doc was helmed by award-winning director Derik Murray, known for his I Am series of documentaries on subjects including John F. Kennedy Jr. and Heath Ledger.

I Am Paul Walker will continue Paramount Network's foray into original programming since its transition from the former Spike TV brand. I Am Paul Walker is set to premiere Saturday, Aug. 11, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Paramount Network.
