YouTube released the first trailer for its upcoming Demi Lovato docuseries “Dancing With the Devil” on Wednesday, teasing the pop star’s frank discussion about her recent struggles.
The four-part series, which is set to open the South by Southwest Film Festival next month, will explore the moments that led up to Lovato’s near-fatal overdose in 2018. In the clip, Lovato reveals that she had three strokes and a heart attack during her hospitalization, with doctors at one point predicting she had as little as five minutes left to live.
“I crossed a line that I had never crossed… I snapped,” Lovato says at one point in the trailer, which is soundtracked by an as-yet-unreleased song from the pop star, who goes on to declare she’s “starting over.”
The docuseries features interviews with Lovato as well as her friends and family, with appearances by Elton John and Christina Aguilera.
Here’s the full description for the series:
