Netflix keeps on bringing the true-crime documentary heat, as their latest doc will tackle perhaps the most reviled criminal in recent years: convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
Here’s the official synopsis for Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich, a four-part docuseries that will include first-hand accounts from accusers and is directed by Lisa Bryant (via Netflix):
Leading up to his 2019 arrest, mysterious tycoon Jeffrey Epstein was accused of abusing women and underage girls for decades, assembling a network of enablers to help carry out and cover up his crimes. Epstein came from humble beginnings yet managed to lie and manipulate his way to the top of the financial world. He eventually gained tremendous wealth and power while running an international sex trafficking ring. The serial sex abuser made a secret plea deal with the government in 2008 avoiding a potential life sentence and continued to abuse women.
With their frightening firsthand accounts, Epstein’s accusers are the leading voices in director Lisa Bryant’s four-part docuseries JEFFREY EPSTEIN: FILTHY RICH. By revealing their emotional scars, some for the very first time, the sisterhood of survivors intend to stop predators — and the American justice system — from silencing the next generation.
Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich was executive produced bestselling crime novel writer James Patterson and Netflix’s Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes documentarian Joe Berlinger. Additionally, “Bryant and writer Peter Landesman are also executive producers along with Jon Doran, Jon Kamen, Bill McClane, Bill Robinson, and Leopoldo Gout,” according to Collider.
Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich will hit Netflix in the United States on Wednesday, May 27.
