Britney Spears’ Conservatorship Is Examined in FX Docuseries: See the Trailer

In an upcoming episode of The New York Times Presents, the FX docuseries will go deep on Britney Spears’ incredible pop-music success and why she’s now in a court battle with her father to take back control of her life.

On Thursday (Jan. 21), a 30-second preview was released of the “Framing Britney Spears” episode, debuting Feb. 5 on FX and FX on Hulu.

“Her rise was a global phenomenon. Her downfall was a cruel national sport,” reads FX promotional material for the episode. “People close to Britney Spears and lawyers tied to her conservatorship now reassess her career as she battles her father in court over who should control her life.”

At a November hearing, Spears asked the court to remove her dad, Jamie Spears, as co-conservator of her estate. Spears has been under a conservatorship led by her father since 2008, when she was placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold after a hospitalization.

Some familiar faces pop up in the New York Times Presents preview, including former MTV VJ Dave Holmes and #FreeBritney organizer Leanne Simmons. Watch the preview below, and catch the episode Feb. 5 on FX.
