It’s Britney, bitch. Actually, it’s not. It’s really, really not.

But The Lifetime Channel desperately hopes you won’t hold that against them.

Actor Clayton Chitty takes on the role of a lifetime as ex-cornrow Kevin Federline.

And if you think that’s uncanny — which, to be clear, it isn’t — how about Nathan Keyes as Justin Timberlake, eh?

Just, wow. How unbelievably wow.

According to press materials, the two-hour biopic will be upon us sometime next year, depicting Britney’s “rise to fame, fall from grace and eventual triumphant resurrection, firmly securing her position as one of the world’s greatest entertainers.”

Our question: will they be re-enacting Spears’ classic performance of “Gimme More” from the 2007 VMAs?

Let’s revisit, for old time’s sake.
