'Framing Britney Spears', a new documentary on the life of Britney Spears the New York Times will release on February 5 on streaming platform Hulu and FX. The documentary will reportedly feature Spears' legal struggle over the last decade concerning the case of conservatorship given to her father by the court. Britney Spears hasn’t been able to fully live her own life for 13 years, stuck in a court-sanctioned conservatorship.
The documentary has been produced and directed by Samantha Stark. It is also revealed that the documentary will have important interviews with insiders such as a family friend of Spears who travelled with her to court in the last few years, her current lawyer who is fighting her case against conservatorship in court, her former lawyers who were associated with the case and a marketing executive who originally created Britney Spear's image.
Spears' lawyer had told the court in November that the pop star is afraid of her father. The lawyer had added, "She will not perform again if her father is in charge of her career." Spears' conservatorship was sanctioned to her father in 2008 when she was 26-years-old and even now she, 39, doesn't have the rights to her finance and property. Last year, fans of Britney Spears started using hashtag #freebritney as the fans believed that Britney Spears was asking for help by sharing cryptic posts on social media.
The documentary presented by the New York Times is also going to highlight the media coverage of the pop star over the years.
