The singer will be the subject of the as-yet-untitled project, which will be directed by Michael D. Ratner, the man behind YouTube’s Justin Bieber: Seasons series, which documented the singer’s return to music.
The series, showcasing the 27-year-old Lovato, will cover her near-fatal overdose in 2018 and her journey back to full health and sobriety, as well as key events including her landmark performance of the National Anthem at this year’s Super Bowl.
For Demi, the series comes three years after she teamed up with YouTube to release Demi Lovato: Simply Complicated, which tackled her struggle with addiction and her initial journey to sobriety before her 2018 relapse.
Lovato co-stars in Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga, which debuts on Netflix today (June 26, 2020). The comedy, starring Will Ferrell and Rachel McAdams is about musicians competing to represent Iceland in the annual Eurovision Song Contest.
Demi plays Katiana, a top contender from Iceland, and director David Dobkin tells ABC Audio he was surprised she agreed to do it.

“We do some weird stuff with her visually,” Dobkin explains. “I don’t want to say what that is, but I was worried when we sent it to her that she was gonna be like, ‘Ewww, I don’t want to do that!'” But she’s like, ‘Oh, my God, that’s the reason I wanted to do it…the fact that you were gonna fuck me up like that, that was cool!'”
In the film, Lovato performs “In the Mirror,” which was written and produced by Jörgen Elofsson.
