Pop megastar Britney Spears is the subject of a new BBC Two documentary, which'll air later this spring.
Tagged with the working title Britney, BAFTA-winning journalist Mobeen Azhar is behind this one, having visited both the 39-year-old's home state of Louisiana and Los Angeles during autumn of last year.
Spears has been held under a conservatorship for 13 years now; a legal arrangement active in America that places an adult under the legal guardianship of another, which means most of her life decisions are being made by a group of people.
A press release revealed: "Along the way [Azhar] attends a court hearing, finding himself in the midst of the ongoing battle between Britney's conservatorship team and the passionate fans behind the #FreeBritney movement.
"He speaks to those fighting to free Britney and discovers what that means to them, and meets the people closest to Britney herself to learn more about the person behind the headlines."
Azhar himself also mentioned in a statement: "I went to LA in search of the truth of how Britney Spears, one of the biggest popstars on the planet, ended up in a conservatorship.
"I found myself in a world of lawyers, superfans and paparazzi and spent time with many of the people who've had a front row seat in Britney's life. This film taps into the energy of the #FreeBritney movement and questions the industry, fandom and the laws that facilitate conservatorships."
Britney will air on BBC Two later this spring.
