Australian actress Natasha Bassett is set to portray the songstress in the upcoming TV film, which, according to a press release, will document the “Baby One More Time” singer’s “rise to fame, fall from grace and eventual triumph and resurrection.”

In a series of snaps released by the network, Bassett re-creates Spears’ famous relationship with Justin Timberlake. The actress wears a green lace-up crop top and oversize sunglasses while posing with her costar Nathan Keyes, who plays Timberlake in the film. Keyes — wearing a gray beanie and leather jacket — looks just like the ’90s version of the “Cry Me a River” singer, whom Spears dated from 1999 till 2002.

Bassett also offers up her best sultry Spears look in gold low-rise pants, a sparkly crop top and fur coat similar to the Grammy winner’s Me Against the Music cover art.

Lifetime has previously done biopics on celebs such as Whitney Houston and Brittany Murphy.

Spears doesn’t support the TV flick. As previously reported, her rep told Us Weekly that she “will not be contributing in any way, shape or form to the Lifetime biopic, nor does it have her blessing.”

Lifetime’s Britney premieres in February 2017.
