The highly anticipated doc is available to watch on FX and Hulu beginning on September 24th and “reveals much of how [the conservatorship] worked, including an intense surveillance apparatus that monitored every move she made,” according to an official description of the documentary.

Part of The New York Times Presents series, it comes nearly eight months after the premiere of the documentary Framing Britney Spears, which was also directed by Samantha Stark, the filmmaker behind Controlling Britney Spears.

The new Britney doc features interviews from insiders about Spears’ 13-year conservatorship, including a former employee of a security firm that was hired by Spears’ father, Jamie Spears, to watch and protect her. It will also shed some light into the most recent developments into her conservatorship, which Britney has asked a judge to terminate.

“When Britney spoke publicly about her conservatorship in detail for the first time during a court hearing in June, she said a reason she hadn’t spoken up earlier is she didn’t think people would believe her,” Stark says, in a statement. “Britney’s speech motivated the people in this film to seek us out to share their stories — at great risk to themselves — because they felt compelled to back up what Britney was saying with evidence they had or moments they witnessed.”
