Netflix's 'Britney Vs. Spears' Trailer Promises A Deep Dive Into The World Of Conservatorships

Fans have learned more about Britney Spears' conservatorship in the past eight months than throughout the entire first decade, thanks in part to The New York Times's Framing Britney Spears documentary, which aired in February. And we've still got a lot to uncover. Enter: Netflix's new Britney Spears documentary, Britney vs. Spears.

Directed by documentary filmmaker and true crime vet Erin Lee Carr, Britney vs. Spears promises to paint a more complete picture of Spears' long battle to end her conservatorship — which pretty much started right when it began in 2008. Jamie Spears, Spears' father, has been the conservator of her person and estate (meaning he has control of her personal day-to-day decisions and her finances) for 13 years, and for most of those years, he managed to steer clear of any intense public scrutiny. But not anymore.

This new documentary comes at an interesting time in Spears' case against her father. After Spears' lawyer, Mathew Rosengart, filed to end her conservatorship, Jamie filed papers to step down — with conditions — but the two have yet to come to any kind of official agreement. Most recently, on Wednesday, Sept. 22, Rosengart made a court filming suggesting that the conservatorship to be over "completely and inevitably" this fall, and, once again, called on Jamie to step down without any monetary payout. Rosengart reportedly told the court that Spears wants to start negotiating a prenup with her new fiancé, Sam Asghari, as soon as possible, but she can't do that while her father is in charge of her estate.

Fans will have to wait and see whether or not this documentary will impact Spears' ongoing court proceedings remains unknown.
