If you were wondering if this Britney Spears doc on FX/Hulu is compelling, I believe this answers that question. It's apparently a compelling enough story to inspire more than one run at a documentary about it. I thought the FX one was pretty interesting. Curious to see how Netflix presents it
On the heels of the release of Framing Britney Spears and the widespread conversation it ignited, Netflix has announced it will be making its own Britney Spears-focused documentary for its platform. Directed by Samantha Stark, Framing Britney Spears premiered on FX and FX on Hulu on February 5 as one of many installments in the ongoing "New York Times Presents" docuseries. Following its release, Framing Britney Spears became the focus of a variety of discourse threads, including a re-examination of the way female celebrities are treated by the media and the legitimacy of Spears' conservatorship which is currently overseen by her father, Jamie Spears.
Earlier this week,Bloombergreported a new documentary about Spears is in the works from director Erin Lee Carr and, notably, has been in the works long beforeFraming Britney Spears premiered. Carr is a seasoned director of true crime documentaries and is both an excellent and intriguing name to be attached to a project of this magnitude.
