(CNN) -- Daniel Radcliffe's most recent project is very special for the actor.

"David Holmes: The Boy Who Lived" tells the story of Holmes, a gymnast who was Radcliffe's stunt double for 10 years in the "Harry Potter" films before a 2009 accident on the set of "Deathly Hallows, Part 1" left him paralyzed. Radcliffe is the executive producer of the documentary.

"As Daniel and other colleagues who are also doubles come together to support David and his family in their time of need, it is David's extraordinary spirit of resilience that becomes his greatest source of strength and inspiration," reads a press release from the project.

Holmes shared the news of the project on Instagram on Tuesday.

"Being a stunt double was my calling in life, and being Harry's stunt double was the best job in the world," he wrote. "This film tells the story of not only my accomplishments in front of the camera, but also the challenges I face every day and my overall attitude to life after suffering a broken neck."

"In the turbulent world we live in now, I would like to quote Harry: 'We are only as strong as we stand united, and as weak as we are divided,'" he added.

The film includes personal footage of Homes' life filmed over the past decade and behind-the-scenes footage of Holmes' work as a stunt performer, as well as interviews with Radcliffe, friends, family and members of the production team.

Directed by Dan Hartley, the documentary premieres on HBO on Nov. 15 and will be available to stream on Max, which, like CNN, are divisions of Warner Bros. Discovery.
