Janet Jackson is something of a paradox. She’s one of the biggest pop stars on the planet—and one of the most mysterious. Despite her dozens of monster hits and multiple decades in the spotlight, Jackson has somehow managed to keep her private life private—no easy task for a member of the Jackson family. That’s why the release of her upcoming documentary JANET promises to be such a landmark event.
Set to air simultaneously over two nights on A&E and Lifetime in January 2022, JANET offers fans an “intimate, honest, and unfiltered look” at one of the greatest all-around entertainers of the last 40 years. The four-hour film was executive produced by Janet and her brother Randy, and it’s packed with footage from throughout Jackson’s legendary career.
