Britney Spears fans are reportedly getting a second major documentary about the star.
Bloomberg reported Monday that Netflix was planning a documentary film about Spears, after rival streaming site Hulu released its documentary “Framing Britney Spears.”
Per Bloomberg, Netflix’s documentary will be directed by Erin Lee Carr, who specialises in true crime documentaries. Her last credit is a miniseries for Netflix called “How to Fix a Drug Scandal.”
Bloomberg reported that the project was already in the works when Hulu’s “Framing Britney Spears” came out.
Netflix was not immediately available to comment on the project when contacted by Insider.
“Framing Britney Spears” has become a smash hit for Hulu, charting her battle for conservatorship over her $US59 million estate.
This isn’t the first time Netflix and Hulu have made competing documentaries about the same topic. In 2019, both companies made separate documentaries about the ill-fated Fyre Festival.
