American singer-actor Demi Lovato will make her directorial debut with “Child Star” (working title), a feature-length documentary for Hulu.
The project 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.
Lovato will co-direct alongside Nicola Marsh. Producers include Michael Ratner’s OBB Pictures, Lovato’s production banner DLG and Scooter Braun’s SB Projects.
Meanwhile, the documentary will stream exclusively on Hulu in 2024.
In a statement, Lovato said: “There is no better film or topic for my directorial debut than this story, which is close to home.”
“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.”
