Lifetime Announces Britney Spears Biopic

Mere days ahead of the release of Britney Spears’ new album Glory, Lifetime has announced a biopic about the iconic pop star. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the two-hour TV movie Britney will detail the “tumultuous true story” of her rise to fame, fall from grace, and triumphant comeback. Natasha Bassett (Hail, Caesar) is set to star, with Leslie Libman directing from a script by Anne-Marie Hess. Production will begin 9/19 in Vancouver, and the film will premiere sometime next year.
