We just might have a few more answers to the eternal “what is going on with Britney Spears?” question, thanks to a brand new documentary about the popstar’s ongoing conservatorship battle.
Britney Spears has been under her father Jamie Spears’ conservatorship since 2008, following her very public breakdown the year before.
The 39-year-old singer has since been back and forth in the courtroom to try and free herself from his conservatorship, even threatening to never return to music until she is given autonomy over her life. She lost her latest legal battle in November 2020 and was unsuccessful in trying to stop her father from controlling her estate.
The documentary is entitled Framing Britney Spears and was produced by New York Times journalists Jason Stallman, Sam Dolnick, and Stephanie Priess, alongside Ken Druckerman, Banks Tarver, and Mary Robertson from Left/Right Productions.
So what can we expect from the documentary?
If we are to believe the reports, the documentary will explore everything from Britney’s music career to her ongoing legal battles over her conservatorship, and the controversial #FreeBritney movement which started an entire decade ago if you can believe it.
The documentary also features interviews with the people close to the popstar, as well as the lawyers who are involved in her conservatorship battle.
In the trailer, which you can see on the FX Documentaries Twitter, one of the interviewees can be heard saying, “the way we treated her was disgusting,” so we can’t wait to hear more!
FX Documentaries shared a teaser of the trailer on Twitter, with the caption:
“Her phenomenal rise to superstardom. A downfall that shocked the world. And now, an ensuing conservatorship battle.”
You can catch Framing Britney spears on FX and FX On Hulu from February 5.
