Watch the Trailer for ‘Britney Ever After,’ the Britney Spears Biopic Whose Name Really Is ‘Britney Ever After’


As one amusing protest sign I saw at the Women’s March this weekend read, “If Britney can make it through 2007, we can make it through this.” And if the notion of Blackout-era Britney making her way back towards the light is something that gives you inspiration, you may be in luck: that saga, along with a lot of the rest of her life, is about to be reconstituted in what looks to be standard saccharine Lifetime movie fashion in the network’s unauthorized biopic, Britney Ever After. The film’s trailer has just been shared, revealing an infamous hair clipper, the flattery and invasion and derision from the press, a the K-F[w]ed[ding], the vocal fry, the personal turmoil, and, above all, getting her through it, the desire to “be strong for [her] fans.”

Per Entertainment Weekly, the biopic covers both her teenage rise to fame as well as her highly publicized struggles in the 2000s (which were seemingly only exacerbated by how public they were made.) Spears is played here by Natasha Bassett (Hail, Caesar!)

Watch the trailer for the biopic, which airs February 18 at 8 p.m. on Lifetime:
