Janet Jackson will celebrate the 40th anniversary of her self-titled 1982 album with a special two-night documentary event that will simulcast on A&E and Lifetime in 2022.
Boasting unprecedented and unfettered access to the best-selling pop icon, the documentary, tentatively titled JANET, offers an intimate look at her story for the first time through exclusive archival footage, never-before-seen home videos and celebrity interviews. The two-night, four-hour special will uncover the hardest moments in her personal life and professional career, including the passing of her father and the Jackson family patriarch Joe, her 2004 Super Bowl halftime show performance with Justin Timberlake the death of her brother Michael Jackson, and becoming a mother later in her life.
Ben Hirsh directed JANET, with Workerbee producing for Lifetime and A&E and Associated Entertainment Corporation co-producing. Janet Jackson and Randy Jackson are executive producers on the project, while Rick Murray is credited as the executive producer for Workerbee and Brie Miranda Bryant is serving as executive producer for A+E Networks.
