The biopic which is titled "Britney," reportedly doesn't have the singer's approval.
According to the network, the biopic will follow the singer's career, relationship with Justin Timberlake, failed marriages, among every other important aspect of her life.
Britney Jean Spears was just a young girl from Louisiana trying to make a name for herself in the music scene when her talent became undeniable to all those around her. While handlers soon began planning her every move, Britney found solace with fellow pop singer Justin Timberlake.
Tragically, as Britney’s star continued to shine, her private life crumbled after the divorce of her parents and her tabloid breakup with Justin. Her personal behavior soon eclipsed her pop icon success as a quickie marriage to childhood friend and later, an ill-fated marriage to dancer Kevin Federline, became the talk of the world.
With her life spiraling out of control, Britney hit rock bottom, lost custody of her sons and was placed under her father’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.
To be directed by Leslie Libman, the biopic will star Natasha Bassett as Spears, and is expected to premiere in 2017.
Following the announcement on Wednesday, August 24, 2016, EW reacher out to Spears' representatives, who confirmed that the singer will not be contributing to the project, neither does the project have her blessing.
