Demi Lovato is officially headed to direct her first feature film, a Hulu documentary focusing on child stardom.
Child Star: Demi Lovato to make feature directorial debut with Hulu documentary on child stardom
According to Variety, Lovato will co-direct Child Star (working title) alongside Nicola Marsh. Producers include Michael D. Ratner’s OBB Pictures, Lovato’s production banner DLG and Scooter Braun’s SB Projects. The three companies previously worked together on the pop star’s docuseries Dancing With the Devil, which was about Lovato’s personal life and struggles with addiction, particularly their near-fatal overdose in 2018.
Lovato's upcoming feature-length documentary aims to “deconstruct the highs and lows of growing up in the spotlight through the lens of some of the world’s most famous former child stars, including Lovato,” according to a press release. “The film will explore how children are propelled to superstardom at a young age and how their rise to fame, fortune, and power affects their futures.” The documentary will exclusively stream on Hulu in 2024. Notably, the streaming service is owned by Disney where Lovato began her acting career.
Additionally, the film features a number of interviews with former child stars. “Through intimate conversations led by Lovato, verité footage, and archival material from all subjects involved, the film will reach beyond the traditional narratives seen in op-eds and tabloids to consider the changing nature of growing up in an increasingly connected and public world,” as per the press release.
“There is no better film or topic for my directorial debut than this story, which is close to home,” said Lovato in a statement. “Our project sheds light on important messages about growing up in the public eye, learning to protect our boundaries, and becoming active advocates of our own destinies. I’m humbled to be able to learn from the individuals who have lived the unique experience of child stardom and share their stories in our film.”
The Child Star documentary will exclusively stream on Hulu in 2024.
