They are adored and admired stars, idols for entire generations. They live their lives in public; every move is made in full glare of the media spotlight. But some of them pay the ultimate price for their fame: at the height of their careers, their lives come to an abrupt end - and their deaths add to their legends. Despite their success and early fame, the lives of these noted celebrities - Heath Ledger, dead at 28 of prescription drug intoxication; John Belushi, dead at 33 of a speedball overdose; Kurt Cobain, 27 years old when he shot himself in the head; and Sharon Tate, 26 and pregnant when she was killed in the grisly Charles Manson cult murders - ended in tragedy. In this riveting series, explore how the gap between actual life and public reporting helped to create these contemporary legends. "Too Young to Die" portrays the individuals behind the myth.
