Lifetime announced they’ve ordered a two-hour biopic Britney (Working title) “detailing the tumultuous story of pop icon Britney Spears’ rise to fame, fall from grace and eventual triumphant resurrection, firmly securing her position as one of the world’s greatest entertainers,” says a press release from Lifetime.
Britney Jean Spears was a talented young girl from Louisiana who made a name for herself in the music scene as a young teenager. Her rise to fame, her parents divorce, her relationship and breakup with Justin Timberlake, a quickie marriage in Las Vegas, and her ill-fated marriage to Kevin Federline, all led to her spiral to rock bottom when she lost custody of her sons and being placed under her Dad’s conservatorship. “But despite her past troubles, Britney has battled back to rebuild her career to its former glory, proving to everyone that she’s a timeless force in entertainment,” says the press release.
Britney Spears could arguably be the greatest comeback in entertainment, and we’ll soon see the two-hour Britney biopic premiering on Lifetime in 2017. Production begins this September in Vancouver.
