only interviews will be added to Britney and Kevin’s “shaky” home video footage.
UPN’s Britney and Kevin: Chaotic kicks off on Tuesday, and it will feature mostly home video footage shot by the couple. Rumored footage that will be shot by producers will only consist of interviews. As USA TODAY reports, “though 90% of the show is culled from the couple’s footage, UPN shot interviews with Spears and Federline, separately and together, to stitch together the chronological story.” Executive producer Susan Zirinsky says that the home video footage isn’t the best quality: “Some of it’s really shaky.” The series kicks off “with a one-hour episode Tuesday,” USA TODAY reports, and “the series will air half-hour editions for three weeks before wrapping up with an hour-long finale planned for June 14. The episodes will repeat on either MTV or VH1 a week after their UPN run.”
