On the east coast, for example, episodes will be available at 3 p.m. Other U.S. time zones, meanwhile, will get episodes at 2 p.m. Central and 1 p.m. Mountain Time.

All episodes will be available to watch for free on Demi Lovato's YouTube channel. Also streaming there for free are both the original version and director's cut on Demi Lovato: Simply Complicated, the singer's first documentary from 2017, the year before the overdose that changed her life.

Demi Lovato's four-part documentary 'Dancing with the Devil' comes to YouTube this March. YouTube

The official YouTube synopsis for Dancing with the Devil reads, "Premiering March 23, Demi Lovato holds nothing back in this powerful four part documentary series exploring every aspect that led to her nearly fatal overdose in 2018, and her awakenings in the aftermath. Director Michael D. Ratner is granted unprecedented access to the superstar's personal and musical journey during the most trying time of her life as she unearths her prior traumas and discovers the importance of her physical, emotional, and mental health. Far deeper than an inside look beyond the celebrity surface, this is an intimate portrait of addiction, and the process of healing and empowerment."

"I was humbled to be able to give her a platform to tell her story," the director told Billboard, "my responsibility is to give her the space to tell as much of her story and experience as she wants to tell. Ultimately, I found her opening up more and more as the process went on, and the trust was earned.

"[Demi] told me that she was pretty prepared to go deep into 2018 and break the record on a lot that happened there, but I think that she even surprised herself with how comfortable she felt with the process and the way the project was turning out that she wanted to use it as the ultimate catharsis. She wanted to tell the story of her trials and tribulations since that time in 2018, 2019 and all the way up to 2021."

The documentary premiered at a digital edition of the South by Southwest (SXSW) festival earlier in March. Response from the doc's debut was very positive, with the series currently rated 82 percent "fresh" according to Rotten Tomatoes. Many critics praised the documentary and Lovato for her candid and honest discussion of issues like drug and alcohol abuse, sexual abuse, eating disorders and self-harm.

Demi Lovato: Dancing with the Devil airs Tuesdays on YouTube.
