With everyone looking at Britney Spears and her conservatorship, Netflix announced that they will be making a new documentary about Britney vs her family called “Britney vs Spears”.
This makes it the second documentary about Spears’s battles with her conservatorship after “Framing Britney Spears” which was released earlier this year on Hulu and started the #FreeBritney movement.
Britney vs. Spears is set to premiere on September 28, the day before her next conservatorship hearing.
According to Netflix, Britney vs Spears tells the explosive story of Britney’s life and her public and private search for freedom. Featuring years-long investigative work, exclusive interviews, and new documents, this Netflix feature film paints a thorough portrait of the pop star’s trajectory from girl next door to a woman trapped by fame and family and her own legal status.
It shows Britney’s life without utilizing the traumatic images that have previously defined her. Director Erin Lee Carr (How to Fix a Drug Scandal, Dirty Money) and journalist Jenny Eliscu work to delve deep into the tangled history of the conservatorship that has been in place for over 13 years.
The film weaves a shocking timeline of old and new players, secret rendezvous and Britney’s behind-the-scenes fight for her own autonomy. Text messages and a voice mail, as well as new interviews with key players, make clear what Britney herself has attested: the full story has yet to be told.
