Her 2012 film, Stay Strong, followed Demi through her recovery after she cancelled a tour with the Jonas Brothers and went to rehab. Then in 2017 she filmed another documentary about her past and opened up about being dishonest in her previous film and admitted to being under the influence of cocaine during production.

This new documentary will be a four-part series directed by Michael Ratner and will premiere on YouTube on 23 March.
