Demi Lovato to make directorial debut with documentary

The film is tentatively titled Child Star

Published: 17th March 2023

The singer-songwriter and actor Demi Lovato will be marking her directorial debut with a feature-length documentary which is tentatively titled Child Star.

According to a press release quoted by Variety, the documentary focusses 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."

Demi will be helming the documentary along with Nicola Marsh, with Michael D Ratner’s OBB Pictures, Lovato’s DLG, and Scooter Braun’s SB Projects backing it. Notably, the three banners have collaborated to make docuseries Dancing With the Devil.

Hulu will be the streaming partner of the documentary which will release in 2024. While it is yet to be known who will be featured in Child Star, it will have interviews of former child celebrities, archives and other footages.

"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,” read the release.

Demi said in a statement, “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.”
