Britney VS Spears: the pop star’s battle debute on Netflix

Netflix doesn’t leave Britney Spears’ guardianship story untold with its upcoming documentary Britney vs Spears. The creators claim: all the secrets will be revealed.

 

After a highly successful documentary to draw attention to Britney Spears’ infamous guardianship, Netflix will follow a similar path with Britney Vs. Spears. Earlier this year, Hulu’s Framing Britney Spears took a deep dive into the famous pop star’s story, taking in everything from her rise to fame to her public meltdown. Many viewers were most disturbed by the revelations of the star’s guardianship, which has been ongoing since 2008 and launched the #FreeBritney social movement.

On Netflix, Britney Vs. Spears’ first full trailer on Netflix puts even more emphasis on this situation. In the trailer, Britney can be heard lamenting about how she just wants her life back. The film also recalls that the doc announces “there are no more secrets,” suggesting that new information will be revealed. It certainly seems to be a must-see doc for those interested in the guardianship and Britney’s situation. You can watch the new full trailer below.

 

 

When Framing Britney Spears was released, the singer turned to her fans to say she was shocked by her support. At the time, she said she hadn’t watched the documentary yet, but from what she saw, she “cried for two weeks”. The trailer for Britney v Spears may be right about more secrets to be uncovered about the whole situation and perhaps more questions to be answered.

The official synopsis says: “The world knows Britney Spears: performer, artist, icon. But for the past few years, her name has been publicly associated with another, the more vague term: conservatory. Britney VS Spears tells the explosive story of Britney’s life and her public and private struggle for freedom. Drawing on years of investigative work, exclusive interviews, and new documents, this Netflix film paints an in-depth picture of the pop star’s trajectory from a girl next door to a woman trapped by fame, family, and legal status. Britney’s life is presented without the use of the traumatic images that previously defined her.”

Director Erin Lee Carr (How To Fix a Drug Scandal, Dirty Money) and journalist Jenny Eliscu work to dig deep into the tangled history of the caretaker’s 13-plus years. The film takes place in different timelines, mixing old and new characters to show Britney’s behind-the-scenes struggle for independence. Text messages and a voicemail, as well as new interviews with key players, make clear what Britney herself says: the whole story has yet to be told.”

Carr will also produce the project alongside Sarah Gibson and Kate Berry. Dan Cogan, Liz Garbus, Jon Bardin, Julie Gaither, Jenny Eliscu, and Amy Herdy will also executive produce. The film will premiere on Netflix on 28 September.
