A Documentary About Janet Jackson’s Life is in the Works

A documentary about Janet Jackson’s incredible life is on its way!

“JANET”, which was greenlit by the Lifetime and A&E networks, will celebrate 40 years since the release of the music icon’s first album.

According to a press release, we can expect “an intimate, honest and unfiltered look at her untold story.”


Yep, that includes the highs and lows of her career (hello 2004 Super Bowl performance with Justin Timberlake) and her personal life (the deaths of brother, Michael, and father, Joseph, as well as becoming a mum later in life.)

“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,” the release continues.

The documentary is due to air in early 2022.
