A&E and Lifetime will simulcast a two-night documentary event celebrating the 40th anniversary of Janet Jackson's self-titled 1982 album.
The special will air in 2022.
The documentary, tentatively titled JANET, offers an intimate look at her story for the first time through exclusive archival footage, never-before-seen home videos and celebrity interviews.
The two-night, four-hour special will uncover the hardest moments in her personal life and professional career, including the passing of her father Joe, her 2004 Super Bowl halftime show performance with Justin Timberlake, the death of her megastar brother Michael Jackson, and becoming a mother later in her life.
Janet Jackson will serve as executive producer on the project.
