Janet Jackson fans will be amped to hear that a two-night, four documentary event will be headed to Lifetime and A&E soon in celebration of the 40th anniversary of Jackson’s first album.
According to the press release, the doc, tentatively titled “JANET,” will be filled with “unprecedented access” to the megastar.
“JANET will be an intimate, honest and unfiltered look at her untold story. Producers Workerbee have been filming the incredible documentary for three years and have been granted exclusive access to archival footage and Janet’s never before seen home videos, along with star-studded interviews.”
“JANET” will air in early 2022 on Lifetime and A&E, two of the flagship channels of the A+E Networks portfolio.
The project promises to “lift the lid on her private” life, including the star mourning the loss of her father Joseph, and even her addressing Superbowl appearance with Justin Timberlake in 2004, which led to the star being black-balled from the industry for a spell.
Timberlake recently offered an apology for throwing Jackson under the bus:
“The industry is flawed. It sets men, especially white men up for success. As a man in a privileged position I have to be vocal about this.” Timberlake wrote in an Instagram post. “Because of my ignorance, I didn’t recognize it for all that it was while it was happening in my own life but I do not want to ever benefit from others being pulled down again.
“I specifically want to apologize to Britney Spears and Janet Jackson both individually, because I care for and respect these women and I know I have failed,” Timberlake continued.
Jackson fans were unmoved by his ridiculously delayed apology. We think he’ll likely face another dragging on social media once the documentary airs.
Janet Jackson and her brother Randy Jackson are executive producers on the project.
