Lifetime and A&E have released the first official trailer for Janet Jacksonâ€™s feature documentary titled JANET. The minute-long teaser of the Ben Hirsch-directed doc offers a look at the story behind the Queen of Pop that has been over five years in the making.
The trailer is soundtracked by Jacksonâ€™s breakout 1986 single â€œControlâ€ and features appearances from Missy Elliott, Mariah Carey, Paula Abdul, and her brother Tito Jackson.
The two-night, four-hour documentary is said to be â€œintimate, honest, and unfiltered,â€ diving into Jacksonâ€™s celebrated success stories as well as career setbacks.
The film will also touch on the losses of her brother and music icon Michael Jackson and Joe Jackson, the patriarch of the Jackson family, along with her journey to motherhood.
JANET premieres in January 2022.
Janet recently hinted that sheâ€™s back in the studio working on Black Diamond, the much-anticipated follow-up to 2015â€™s Unbreakable. In honor of her previous album, we revisited the personal LP last year for its fifth anniversary.
Earlier this year, Rated R&B noted the importance of Janetâ€™s hit single â€œAll for Youâ€ in support of the albumâ€™s 20th anniversary.
