Britney TV show gets start date
Britney Spears and Kevin Federline
The couple's show is said to be "a documentation of love"
A reality television series starring singer Britney Spears and her husband Kevin Federline will debut in the US on 17 May, its makers have announced.

The show will premiere in a special one-hour programme on UPN.

The series, as yet untitled, will reveal the couple's courtship and marriage shot on video cameras mainly by the pair themselves.

Spears, who announced on Tuesday that she is expecting their first child, married Federline last September.

The broadcaster said it is in the process of filming new footage and commentary with the pair for next month's debut.

"Now, for the first time, their millions of fans will get to see and hear the couple's real story as told directly by them," said UPN president Dawn Ostroff.

The pop star told Variety magazine that she wanted the programme - which she is executive producing along with her husband - to dispel rumours about her and their marriage.

"I am now going to be expressing my personal life through art," she said.
