Demi also shared more details about the docuseries. “It’s been two years since I came face-to-face with the darkest point in my life. Now I’m ready to share my story with the world”. Adding that, “For the first time, you’ll be able to see my chronicle of struggle and ongoing healing from my point of view. I’m grateful that I was able to take this journey to face my past head-on and finally share it with the world.”
A Look Into The Docuseries
The press release describes the series as an honest look back at some of the most trying times in Demi’s life. She unearths her prior traumas and discovers the importance of her physical, emotional, and mental health. These traumas likely refer to Demi’s near-fatal overdose back in 2018. Demi went on to speak out on World Suicide Prevention Day in September last year.
The ‘I Love Me’ singer said: “Today is World Suicide Prevention Day. Since a young age, I’ve dealt with suicidal thoughts and depression. I’ve been very vocal in raising the awareness of mental health. It is possible to see the light when you start the work on yourself.”
Dancing With The Devil will also make its debut at the SXSW Festival, which had to be canceled last year. The film festival will kick off with the World Premiere of YouTube Originals docuseries Demi Lovato: Dancing with the Devil as its Opening Night Headliner. SXSW Online kicks off on March 16 and continues through March 20.
“It’s impressive and rare to see a pop superstar tell their story so authentically and without pretense”. Said Janet Pierson, Director of Film. “We’re privileged to present this intimate journey told with such vulnerability. Demi Lovato’s profound interest in mental health awareness is helping change the landscape of a crucial issue. Especially, in this year of national and international trauma and loss.”
