Streaming on Max on June 4, “The Idol” centers around an ambitions pop-star enlisting in the help of a self-help guru and cult leader in an effort to get her career back on track. Fans on social media were quick to point out that the show draws parallels to Britney Spears’ life, which Levinson denounced.
