Over the last 13 years, pop star Britney Spears has been subject to a conservatorship which prevents her from controlling the rights to her estate. And now, a new documentary titled “Framing Britney Spears” aims to shed light on the musician’s legal fight and her years under the media’s microscope.
“Framing Britney Spears” is part of the “The New York Times Presents” series of documentaries, and aired as the sixth episode of the show on FX and Hulu. The film covers the musician’s past and the events that led up to the current court batter over her estate.
Since 2008, Spears has been under a conservatorship which grants her father, Jamie Spears, and a lawyer control over her financial and personal assets. Following the episode’s airing, new developments have already occurred which could alter the dynamic of the conservatorship.
Hulu and FX aren’t the only platforms exploring the life and career of Britney Spears. According to Bloomberg, Netflix is reportedly working on a Britney Spears documentary of its own. It’s unclear what aspect of Spears’ life the new doc will focus on, however, and there’s no release date yet.
