JANET (working title) is a four-hour documentary event that will provide an intimate look at her life and career with never-before-seen footage and home videos. Filming has been under way for three years and follows the 54-year-old and her family as they mourn the loss of their father who passed in  2018.

According to CNN, she will also discuss the “controversial 2004 Super Bowl halftime show performance with Justin Timberlake, her father Joe Jackson and the death of her brother Michael Jackson.”

Jackson is set to executive produce the project along with Randy Jackson. The project is targeted for an early 2022 debut.
