Janet Jackson has revealed release details for JANET, a forthcoming documentary about her career that she co-produced with Randy Jackson. The two-part film will air over two nights on Lifetime and A&E, but a specific date has not yet been announced. Watch a teaser for JANET below.
The documentary arrives nearly three years after Jackson was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, with Janelle Monáe performing the honors. It also marks the 40th anniversary of Jackson’s debut album Janet. Earlier this year, some of her work was archived in the Library of Congress, alongside material from LaBelle, Kool & the Gang, Nas, Kermit the Frog, and more.
