Janet Jackson is bringing her story to Lifetime in the form of a two-night documentary event.
The network announced the project, tentatively titled ‘JANET,’ moments ago.
Set for a 2022 debut, the doc has been filming footage for three years.
Produced by Workerbee and Associated Entertainment, the project promises unprecedented access to the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer’s life, as well as a raw and unvarnished account of one of the highest-grossing and charting acts of all time.
The two-night, four-hour documentary event joins Janet as her family is going through another extremely difficult time, mourning the loss of her father Joseph, the pivotal figure in the Jackson dynasty.
The documentary also details Janet’s return to the world stage following a sudden break from music. Speaking like never before, “Janet also discusses everything including her Super Bowl appearance with Justin Timberlake in 2004, the death of her brother Michael and becoming a mother later in life. And with her own romantic relationship having broken down, she starts to look back at her own life and reflect on her fight to the top.”
Janet Jackson and Randy Jackson are executive producers.
The project, which arrives in the 40th anniversary year of her debut album, will air on both Lifetime and A&E, two of the flagship channels of the A+E Networks portfolio.
