Janet Jackson Two-Night Documentary Set For Lifetime And A&E Network To Coincide With The 40th Anniversary Of Her Debut Album

#Roommates, the iconic Janet Jackson has a career that spans several decades and up until now an in-depth look at her life and career has yet to be told—but that’s all about to change. It has just been announced that Janet Jackson will get the documentary treatment courtesy of a two-night event airing across multiple networks.

@Variety reports, in 2022 Janet Jackson will officially celebrate the 40th anniversary of her debut album “Janet Jackson,” which was originally released back in 1982 when she was just 16. To commemorate her legendary and record-breaking career, Lifetime and A&E will both air a special two-night, four hour documentary event that will give fans an unfiltered look at Janet’s life that has never been seen before.

Tentatively titled “JANET,” the filming for the documentary has reportedly been underway for the past three years—and will highlight past and recent points of her life, including the death of her father Joe Jackson back in 2018.

“JANET” will also take a look at the 2004 Super Bowl incident, Janet’s reaction to the death of her brother Michael Jackson and the long process of her becoming a mother at 50 years old. To ensure that the documentary is as authentic and honest as possible, producers were granted exclusive access to archival footage and never-before-seen home videos while working on the film for the last few years.

As of now, “JANET” is set for a debut on Lifetime and A&E in the early part of 2022. It is executive produced by both Janet Jackson and her brother Randy Jackson, with Ben Hirsch directing.
