Netflix reportedly has its own Britney Spears documentary in the works.
This news arrives after Hulu shared their documentary, Framing Britney Spears, which examined her ongoing conservatorship situation and the #FreeBritney movement. In the wake of the interest that this documentary has conjured up in Spears’ story, Bloomberg reported that the streaming giant is creating their film about Britney.
The service has reportedly recruited director Erin Lee Carr to head-up the project. Carr is known for her work such as the documentaries, I Love You, Now Die: The Commonwealth V. Michelle Carter and At the Heart of Gold: Inside the USA Gymnastics Scandal.
Hulu’s documentary was made alongside the New York Times and has led to an outpouring of support for Spears from a flurry of musicians. On Friday, Justin Timberlake shared an apology to Spears following their break-up in 2002 and his action towards Janet Jackson during their Superbowl performance in 2004.
“I am deeply sorry for the times in my life where my actions contributed to the problem, where I spoke out of turn, or did not speak up for what was right,” he wrote in an Instagram post.
“The industry is flawed,” he wrote. “It sets men, especially white men, up for success. It’s designed this way. As a man in a privileged position I have to be vocal about this. Because of my ignorance, I didn’t recognise it for all that it was while it was happening in my own life but I do not want to ever benefit from others being pulled down again.”
Framing Britney Spears is available to watch now on Hulu in the US, check out the trailer, below.
