New Tubi series ‘TMZ NO BS’ to kick off with Britney Spears episode
For at least one episode, the BS in "TMZ No BS" will stand for Britney Spears.
The latest soon-to-be addition to Tubi’s swiftly growing library of Tubi Originals, "TMZ No BS" is a new unscripted docuseries from executive producers Harvey Levin, Charles Latibeaudier and Ryan Regan. The 12-episode series aims to "give an honest, unfiltered look at some of the biggest names in pop culture, across entertainment, sports, politics and more."
And biggest, in this case, is not an overstatement: The series will kick things off with an episode centered on Spears, an iconic pop star whose stratospheric rise was marred by a decade-long conservatorship that was only terminated by a judge in November 2021. Per a press release, "TMZ No BS: Britney Spears" is "an unfiltered look at the fascinating and tumultuous life of one of pop culture’s biggest and most scrutinized stars. Through inside stories from the reporters who covered her every step of the way, and exclusive footage from the TMZ vault, Harvey, Charles and the gang discuss Britney’s rise to fame and the shocking events that led to a decade-long conservatorship."

"TMZ NO BS is a must watch on Tubi for any avid TMZ follower and all pop culture enthusiasts," said Adam Lewinson, Tubi’s Chief Content Officer. "We’re excited to have fans discover this new docuseries where Harvey Levin and his team sit down for a stripped down roundtable conversation, and examine some of the biggest celebrity moments through a new lens."
That lens is linked to TMZ’s ubiquity in celebrity culture. "Over the last 17 years, TMZ has been a leader in reporting pop culture events, and with that kind of history, reporting and assets, the new unscripted series is uniquely positioned to provide a 360 degree look at the subjects of the documentaries — starting with Britney Spears," Tubi explained in a press release.
