Netflix has just dropped the trailer for an upcoming documentary that aims to show the world more of the full story surrounding the pop music legend and her ongoing legal battles. “Britney vs Spears” is an hour and a half documentary film and will premiere globally on September 28th. The film is by director Erin Lee Carr (“How To Fix a Drug Scandal”, “Dirty Money”) and journalist Jenny Eliscu who work to delve deep into the tangled history of the conservatorship that has been in place for over 13 years. The film promises to weave 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 voicemail as well as new interviews with key players make clear what Britney herself has attested: the full story has yet to be told.
The world knows Britney Spears: performer, artist, icon. But in the last few years, her name has been publicly tied to another, more mysterious term: conservatorship. 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.
