Lifetime’s upcoming Britney Spears biopic entitled Britney Ever After is finally hitting small screens next month. The network released the first trailer even after it sparked controversy with the hitmaker. Apparently, Lifetime went ahead to produce the upcoming flick even without Britney’s blessing prior to the film’s announcement.
Get your first look on Britney Ever After, which highlights her glory days, as well as her infamous head-shaving moments.
Britney Spears biopic Britney Ever After gets first trailer
Everyone knows Britney breathed fun and life to upbeat songs like Hit Me Baby One More Time, I’m A Slave 4 U, to more recent tunes like Make Me. Now, an unauthorized biopic about the 35-year-old singer is in the works. US Magazine reports that Britney Ever After will focus on the superstar’s fame, fall, and rise back to success.
The 30-second trailer shows Britney (portrayed by Aussie actress Natasha Bennett) opening up about her publicized “head-shaving breakdown” as the film’s portrayal of that February 2007 incident in the superstar’s life. At Esther’s Haircutting Studio in Tarzana, California the screen flashes with the fictional Britney saying, “I’m not gonna say I was fine… ’cause I wasn’t.” It closes with Benett saying, “Everything’s just kind of a blur, you know? Until you hit rock bottom,” Bennett says in her Southern drawl.
"This Britney biopic was cast with care and is in no way an attempt to humiliate her."

Britney Ever After: Cast, release date, where to watch
The casting alone has garnered mixed reactions from fans. The singer’s rep previously explained how Britney will not be contributing in any way to the film, more so does the upcoming unauthorized biopic “have Britney’s blessing.”
There have been moments in the pop star’s life that entertainment fans dare not forget. Her failed marriage with Kevin Federline, for instance, made headlines worldwide. More so that time Britney shaved her hair off when she was going through a rough patch. Even so, when she released her most recent album Glory, loyal fans stood by her side to see her rise again.
Britney Ever After will hit small screens on Saturday, Feb. 18 at 8 PM ET on Lifetime.
