Janet Jackson‘s infamous Super Bowl “Nipplegate” scandal is getting its own documentary.
Janet was blacklisted in Hollywood following her dramatic 2004 Super Bowl halftime wardrobe malfunction when singer Justin Timberlake ripped off part of Janet’s costume to expose her breast.
The embarrassing moment, which was witnessed by 100 million viewers at home, will be revisited in a new documentary series later this month.
FX and Hulu bosses will feature Nipplegate in its factual series, The New York Times Presents.
Network heads previously partnered with Times editors on two hit series earlier this year – Framing Britney Spears and Controlling Britney Spears.
The documentary, titled Malfunction: The Dressing Down of Janet Jackson will debut on November 19.
The new series will include footage of the scandalous moment, as well as new interviews with many of the behind-the-scenes players.
Conspiracy theories abounded about the big reveal, with some experts suggesting the stunt was orchestrated because – just before the big reveal – Justin sang, “I’ll get you naked by the end of this song.”
And Janet’s then-boyfriend Jermaine Dupri promised a big surprise during the halftime show.
Producers will also detail the effect the shocking X-rated moment had on the careers of both Jackson and Timberlake, who initially distanced himself from the controversy. But he has since apologized for his role in the scandal.
Criticized online for the way he has treated the women in his life following the release of the Framing Britney Spears documentary, Justin said.
“I’ve seen the messages, tags, comments and concerns and I want to respond. I am deeply sorry for the time in my life where my actions contributed to the problem, where I spoke out of turn, or did not speak up for what was right. I understand that I fell short in these moments and in many others and benefited from a system that condones misogyny and racism.”
“I specifically want to apologize to Britney Spears and Janet Jackson both individually, because I care for and respect these women and I know I failed. I also feel compelled to respond, in part, because everyone involved deserves better and most importantly, because this is a larger conversation that I wholeheartedly want to be part of and grow from.”
