Britney Spears hits “rock bottom” in the first trailer for Lifetime’s upcoming biopic “Britney Ever After.”
“I’m not going to say I was fine, because I wasn’t,” star Natasha Bassett says in voiceover as scenes of Spears’ troubled life in the public eye are re-created on screen. “Everything’s just kind of this blur, you know. Until you hit rock bottom.”
“I want to be strong for my fans,” she says. “They’re what keeps me going.”
“Britney Ever After” is a two-hour TV movie that dramatizes the tumultuous story of the pop icon’s rise to fame, fall from grace and eventual resurrection, which firmly secured her status as one of the world’s most enduring entertainers. The film will premiere on Lifetime on Feb. 18.
Well-documented milestones in the singer’s life, including her relationship with Justin Timberlake, her marriage to Kevin Federline and her subsequent public breakdown, will all be included.
“Britney Ever After” is directed by Leslie Libman from a script by Anne-Marie Hess. The film is produced by Asylum Entertainment for Lifetime. Steve Michaels, Jonathan Koch and Joan Harrison serve as executive producers.
