SKY ACQUIRE CONTROLLING BRITNEY SPEARS DOC

Controlling Britney Spears is available on Sky Documentaries and streaming service NOW on Monday 27th September at 9pm. The film will also be available on demand from 8am on the 27th.




From the makers of Framing Britney Spears – which aired on Sky Documentaries and streaming service NOW earlier this year – Controlling Britney Spears is a new documentary that features interviews with key insiders and those with first-hand information about the conservatorship that has controlled the pop star’s life.


In a confidential report in 2016, Britney Spears told a court investigator that her conservatorship had become “an oppressive and controlling tool against her.” But how the conservatorship has controlled her life has never been revealed.



Now, in this New York Times investigation, a portrait emerges of an intense surveillance apparatus that monitored every move she made. From the makers of Framing Britney Spears, this film features exclusive interviews with insiders who had intimate knowledge of her life inside the conservatorship.


The film is produced by The New York Times and Left/Right, a Red Arrow company. Samantha Stark directs and Liz Day is the Supervising Producer. Sophie Judge acquired the title on behalf of Sky.
