See original story below.

Britney Spears new album, Glory, won't be the only dose of Britney fans will get of the pop princess—thanks to Lifetime's plan for a TV biopic.

The biopic, titled Britney, will premiere next year on Lifetime, according toThe Hollywood Reporter. Britney will follow the star from her Louisiana beginnings to her life and career almost 20 years after she burst onto the scene with the iconic "Hit Me Baby One More Time." It'll cover her highly publicized relationship, and breakup, with Justin Timberlake, her past marriages, motherhood, and rough times epitomized by the time she shaved her head in 2007, leading to her conservatorship.

Glory, Spears' ninth album, is out Aug. 26. You can see her perform this Sunday at the VMAs, where she's previously delivered classic performances for "Oops I Did It Again," "I'm a Slave 4 U" (featuring the yellow boa constrictor), and '03's infamous performance with Madonna and Christina Aguilera.

Here's the synopsis for Lifetime's Britney.

"Britney Jean Spears was just a young girl from Louisiana trying to make a name for herself in the music scene when her talent became undeniable to all those around her. While handlers soon began planning her every move, Britney found solace with fellow pop singer Justin Timberlake. Tragically, as Britney's star continued to shine, her private life crumbled after the divorce of her parents and her tabloid breakup with Justin. Her personal behavior soon eclipsed her pop icon success as a quickie marriage to childhood friend and later, an ill-fated marriage to dancer Kevin Federline, became the talk of the world. With her life spiraling out of control, Britney hit rock bottom, lost custody of her sons and was placed under her father's conservatorship. But despite her past troubles, Britney has battled back to rebuild her career to its former glory, proving to everyone that she's a timeless force in entertainment."
