Netflix is planning a documentary film about Britney Spears, after rival streaming site Hulu released its popular documentary on the pop star titled “Framing Britney Spears.” Netflix’s documentary will be directed by Erin Lee Carr, who specializes in true crime documentaries. Her last credit is a miniseries for Netflix called “How to Fix a Drug Scandal.” The project was already in the works when Hulu’s “Framing Britney Spears” came out.
“Framing Britney Spears” has become a smash hit for Hulu, charting her battle for conservatorship over her $59 million estate. The documentary highlighted former boyfriend Justin Timberlake’s treatment of Spears, for which he later publicly apologized for.
