Jackson’s first album, titled Janet Jackson, was released in 1982 when she was 16.
“This is my story told by me, not through someone else’s eyes,” Jackson says in the clip.
Over five years in the making, the four-hour documentary follows Jackson as her family is going through the loss of their father, Joseph, who passed away in 2018.
The film also shows archival footage and detailed accounts of some of the star’s biggest moments, including her 2004 Super Bowl appearance with Justin Timberlake, which sparked controversy that has followed her into the present day.
Janet is executive produced by both Janet and Randy Jackson.
Rick Murray executive produces for Workerbee and Brie Miranda Bryant serves as executive producer for A&E Networks. Ben Hirsch is directing.
