Airdate: The Battle For Britney
As Britney Spears addresses a US court on her conservatorship, 10 screens a UK special.
UK special The Battle For Britney: Fans, Cash And A Conservatorship is screening on 10 next week.
This aired on BBC Two early last month and now screens following her conservatorship hearing on June 23 (US). The singer is expected to address the court regarding her court-ordered conservatorship for the first time in years.
Bafta-winning journalist Mobeen Azhar seeks to uncover the truth behind the conservatorship that Britney Spears has been under for the last 13 years. This film follows Mobeen as he journeys from Los Angeles to Britney’s hometown of Kentwood, Louisiana, untangling the complexities surrounding the conservatorship.
Mobeen delves into one of the most passionate fan bases in modern celebrity, attending a court hearing along the way and finding himself in the midst of the ongoing battle between Britney’s conservatorship team and the passionate fans behind the #FreeBritney movement. He attempts to speak to those on both sides of the fence surrounding the still-unfolding story of one of pop’s biggest ever superstars.
The film includes never-before-seen interviews with, among others, Britney’s makeup artist Billy Brasfield, her former choreographer Brian Friedman, celebrity blogger Perez Hilton and lawyer Lisa MacCarley.
