Lifetime is producing a documentary series on and film that will revolve around the additional women “emerging from the shadows and uniting their voices to share their stories” about R&B star R. Kelly.
Among his sexual abuse allegations, Lifetime is describing the untitled series as a "tell all" that will investigate rumors of abuse, predatory behavior and pedophilia surrounding the singer. There are so many allegations that his lawyer, publicist and assistant have quit.
The alleged accusers of Kelly and people from his inner circle will participate, providing information on the allegations.
The film will reveal the inner world or Kelly, detailing the allegations of abuse, mind games and how his prominence remains in the industry despite these claims.
“What we’ve seen—in the last year in particular—is the tremendous power of women’s voices when given the opportunity to share their truth,” said Brie Miranda Bryant, senior vice president of unscripted development and programming, Lifetime. “But there are important stories still untold, stories of bravery, resilience and defiance that demand to be heard. This is one of those stories.”
The projects are apart of Lifetime's re-launched Stop Violence Against Women campaign, which the network is partnering with organizations to spread awareness and support for women in need of assistance.
There are no premiere dates set by the network at this time.
