Britney Spears has been a topic of conversation lately after The New York Times released a documentary following the controversial conservatorship battle with her father, Jamie Spears.
The film, titled Framing Britney Spears, sees the ‘Womanizer’ star’s legal attempt to remove her father from her conservatorship, which was denied last year.
The documentary also went on to show the songstress’ 28-year career, with mention of her high-profile relationship with Justin Timberlake.

The in-depth documentary was initially released on Hulu on February 5, but it will now be available to watch on Sky Documentaries and NOW TV on February 16 at 9 pm.
NOW TV also took to Twitter to explain that it will be shown on their Entertainment Pass and there's a 7-day free trial for new users, so everyone can have access to watching it.

In its description, it reads: “The New York Times Presents is a series of standalone documentaries representing the unparalleled journalism and insight of The New York Times, bringing viewers close to the essential stories of our time.”
