Four-part Janet Jackson documentary to launch for Irish viewers next week

The Super Bowl show, being "guilty by association" with her brother Michael, it is all getting brought up in this project.

Following on from the massive popularity of the recent Britney Spears documentaries, it would appear the next huge celebrity to get the documentary spotlight cast on them is Janet Jackson.


The makers of Framing Britney Spears have already announced their take, titled Malfunction, focusing on the "wardrobe malfunction" that occurred when Janet Jackson performed on stage with Justin Timberlake during the Super Bowl Half-Time Show.

There is no set Irish air date for that documentary, but Janet Jackson herself has sanctioned another, which has been five years in the making, simply titled Janet Jackson.

Featuring interviews with Mariah Carey, Samuel L. Jackson, Missy Elliott, Rev. Al Sharpton, Paula Abdul, Regina King, Ciara, Teyana Taylor, Whoopi Goldberg, Randy Jackson and many more, the four-part documentary will dive into every aspect of Janet's life and career.

From the powerful trailer below, some of the obvious major talking points include her controlling father, the controversies surrounding Michael Jackson (and the impact they had on her career, making her "guilty by association"), as well as the events of the Super Bowl show that resulted in Janet getting a lifetime ban, while Justin Timberlake walked away scot-free.


The four-part documentary series will air as two double-bills of two episodes over two consecutive nights on Sky Documentaries, with the first two episodes debuting on Monday, 31 January, and the second two episodes on Tuesday, 1 February.

Additionally, all four episodes will be available with your NOW Entertainment Membership from Monday, 31 January.
