It's been revealed that Demi Lovato will make their directorial debut on a new feature-length documentary about child stardom for Hulu.

Variety reports that the documentary has a working title of Child Star, and 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."

It'll mark Lovato's first time directing, and they'll co-direct with Nicola Marsh. The documentary will feature interviews led by Lovato with former child stars, as well as "verité footage, and archival material" from those involved.

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."

More details of the documentary are yet to be revealed, but it's expected to arrive on Hulu in 2024.
