Lifetime

The two-hour movie will follow Spears' relationship with Timberlake and how the divorce of her parents and tabloid breakup affected her. And then there's the quickie wedding she had to childhood friend Alexander and relationship with Federline, public breakdown and return to the spotlight. Lot to cover in two hours.

How does Dewan-Tatum factor in? She was a back-up dancer for *NSYNC at the time Spears and Timberlake were together. Robson is a choreographer who worked with both and Rudolph is Spears' manager.

Steven Michaels, Jonathan Koch and Joan Harrison are executive producing. Leslie Libman is directed a script by Anne-Marie Hess.

"Britney Spears will not be contributing in any way, shape or form to the lifetime biopic nor does it have her blessing," Spears' rep told E! News when the Lifetime movie was announced.
