Ke$ha's brother, filmmaker Lagan Sebert, shot the footage for the series over two years, and the series will also focus on the singer's personal life, including her attempts to find love. Producer and writing partner Dr. Luke is among the executive producers for the series.

"You might have heard my voice on the radio, seen me onstage or in a music video, but that's only a part of the story," Ke$ha said  in a statement. "With this documentary series I'm revealing a more complete picture of what my life is really like. It's not all glamorous, but it's all real."
