If you think about it, it’s surprising that Britney Spears hasn’t received the biopic treatment yet. But thank god for TV network Lifetime, which announced a biopic on the pop star on Wednesday.
Spears is getting her own TV movie, which will focus on the singer’s road to success, including her various ups and downs.
Actress Natasha Bassett will star as Spears in the two-hour biopic. The film will also explore the singer’s relationships with Justin Timberlake, Jason Alexander and Kevin Federline.
