Netflix has released a trailer for its upcoming Britney Spears documentary, “Britney vs. Spears”, which will debut on Netflix on Sept. 28. In the trailer, Spears’ voice is heard from an audio recording from her June 23 testimony at the Los Angeles Superior Courthouse, where she addressed the court for the first time publicly, telling the judge that she is traumatized and pleading, “I just want my life back. I’ve worked my whole life. I don’t owe these people anything.”
The Netflix project, directed by filmmaker Erin Lee Carr, has been in the works for over a year. The Netflix documentary is not the first on Spears’ life; The New York Times produced a doc for Hulu and FX titled “Framing Britney Spears,” which took a look at the conservatorship case, the #FreeBritney movement and the misogynistic media narrative that has framed the pop star throughout her entire career in the spotlight. That doc was nominated for two Emmy awards.
