Lifetime To Make’Surviving Jeffrey Epstein’ Series
Written by laserteam on January 20, 2020
After completing their R.Kelly docu-series, Lifetime is gearing to for their next project about convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
“Lifetime has greenlit a four-hour documentary series, titled Surviving Jeffrey Epstein.
Variety writes that the announcement was shared at the Television Critics Association winter press tour on Saturday. The docuseries was initially declared to be in development last summer and is expected to air on Lifetime this summer.
Epstein was arrested in 2019 and accused of sexually assaulting and trafficking multiple underage girls. A lot of eyes were on the case due to the fact that he mingled with a number of powerful people in Washington D.C. and beyond.”
Lifetime had success with a similar docuseries, last year’s Surviving R. Kelly, which focused on the allegations of sexual abuse and assault lodged against the singer. Kelly was later indicted on multiple federal charges, such as child pornography and kidnapping.
Surviving Jeffrey Epstein will come from Emmy-winner Robert Friedman’s Bungalow Media + Entertainment and will be directed by Anne Sundberg and Ricki Stern. Christopher Mason—a contributor to The New York Times, New York Magazine, Town & Country and Architectural Digest—is also attached to the project. Shura Davidson and Gena McCarthy will executive produce.
