Controlling Britney Spears: How to watch explosive new documentary in New Zealand

  • 04/10/2021

After it's highly publicised and widely acclaimed release in the United States, Three has fast-tracked an exclusive deal so Kiwis can watch the follow up documentary on Britney Spears' conservatorship - The New York Times Presents: Controlling Britney Spears.

On September 29, the pop-icon dominated global headlines once again after a US court ordered that her father, Jamie Spears, had been suspended from his role as Britney's conservator, effective immediately.

Controlling Britney, which comes from the makers of Framing Britney Spears, reveals intimate details on how the 13 year conservatorship worked, which included an intense surveillance apparatus that monitored every move she made.

It also features exclusive interviews with insiders who had personal knowledge of her life inside the conservatorship.

Thirteen years and a worldwide social media movement later, Jamie is no longer in control of Britney's financial and medical affairs. Both documentaries are available exclusively on ThreeNow, and offer an insight into the legalities behind this, the conspiracies and the worldwide outcry of fans who started the #freebritney movement, which ultimately played a huge part in Britney's freedom. 

The New York Times Presents: Controlling Britney Spears is available to stream in New Zealand exclusively on ThreeNow from midday, Monday, October 4, 2021. Framing Britney Spears is also available to stream on ThreeNow.
