Netflix has released the official trailer for Britney vs Spears, Erin Lee Carr’s documentary focusing on Britney Spears‘ conservatorship.

The forthcoming feature “tells the explosive story of Britney’s life and her public and private search for freedom” and includes exclusive interviews, new documents and years-long investigative work:

“The world knows Britney Spears: performer, artist, icon. But in the last few years, her name has been publicly tied to another, more mysterious term: conservatorship. Britney vs Spears tells the explosive story of Britney’s life and her public and private search for freedom. Featuring years-long investigative work, exclusive interviews and new documents, this Netflix feature film paints a thorough portrait of the pop star’s trajectory from girl next door to a woman trapped by fame and family and her own legal status. It shows Britney’s life without utilizing the traumatic images that have previously defined her. Director Erin Lee Carr (How To Fix a Drug Scandal, Dirty Money) and journalist Jenny Eliscu work to delve deep into the tangled history of the conservatorship that has been in place for over 13 years. The film weaves a shocking timeline of old and new players, secret rendezvous and Britney’s behind the scenes fight for her own autonomy. Text messages and a voicemail as well as new interviews with key players make clear what Britney herself has attested: the full story has yet to be told.”

Erin Lee Carr, Sarah Gibson and Kate Barry produced the documentary while Dan Cogan, Liz Garbus, Jon Bardin, Julie Gaither, Jenny Eliscu and Amy Herdy served as executive producers.

Watch the full tailer above. Britney vs Spears premieres on September 28 — the day before her next court date — on Netflix.

In other Netflix news, the streamer has acquired Roald Dahl’s full catalog.
