It's been almost four years since the tragic death of Robin Williams. And still the world hasn't fully recovered as the beloved funnyman and Oscar-winning actor's untimely passing had left a huge hole in the hearts of fans everywhere.

This summer, HBO plans to celebrate the legendary comedian with "Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind." It's a heartfelt documentary that seemingly delivers a loving and intimate portrait of the bonafide comic genius, chronicling his life and career in stand-up comedy as well as his acting career in Hollywood.

Featuring archival footage of his early stand-up performances and rare behind-the-scenes photos, the biographical documentary, which has Williams narrating in his own words through the use of previously recorded audio interviews, is produced by Oscar-winning documentarian Alex Gibney and directed by two-time Emmy-winning profiler Marina Zenovich (Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired, Richard Pryor: Omit the Logic).

"Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind," which features new, exclusive interviews with friends and family members, including Billy Crystal, Whoopi Goldberg, Steve Martin, and Robin's son, Zak Williams, is slated to premiere Monday, July 16th on HBO.

A funny, intimate and heartbreaking portrait of one of the world's most beloved and inventive comedians, Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind is told largely through Williams' own words, and celebrates what he brought to comedy and to the culture at large, from the wild days of late-1970s L.A. to his death in 2014.

The film explores his extraordinary life and career, revealing what drove him to give voice to the characters in his mind. With previously unheard and unseen glimpses into his creative process through interviews with Williams, as well as home movies and onstage footage, this insightful tribute features in-depth interviews with those who knew and loved him, including Billy Crystal, Eric Idle, Whoopi Goldberg, David Letterman, Steve Martin, Pam Dawber and his son, Zak Williams.
