It’s Britney Spears’ world and we’re all just living in it, but come Saturday, Feb. 18, Lifetime hopes to take viewers deeper into the pop princess’ universe with Britney Ever After, their new TV movie biopic.
The first trailer, above, features Natasha Bennett playing Spears during performances and that infamous head-shaving meltdown. The cast also includes Peter Benson as Larry Rudolph, Clayton Chitty as Kevin Federline, Nicole Oliver as Lynne Spears, Nathan Keyes as Justin Timberlake, Markian Tarasiuk as Wade Robinson and many more taking on figures in Spears’ life.
According to Lifetime, Britney Ever After will detail “the tumultuous story of pop icon Britney Spears’ rise to fame, fall from grace and eventual triumphant resurrection, firmly securing her position as one of the world’s greatest entertainers.” So that means we’re in for a variety of moments from Spears’ very public life. Here’s what we need to see, in some form or another:
Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake’s all denim red carpet appearance.
Some kind of opening credit montage depicting the Mickey Mouse Club and “…Baby One More Time.”
A run to the supermarket for Cheetos and Starbucks for a frappuccino. There were so many.
Her infamous interview with Matt Lauer after paps photographed her with her her son on her lap in the front of the car.
