The R. Kelly scandal will be the focus of an upcoming docuseries and television movie that delves into the allegations of sexual misconduct against the singer.
Lifetime announced both projects as part of the network’s Stop Violence Against Women campaign.
The docuseries will provide a “captivating investigation into the controversial superstar.”
The still-untitled series, which examines the decades of allegations against the singer, also features interviews with survivors of Kelly’s alleged “cult” and members of the singer’s inner circle.
The feature-length television movie promises to “lift the veil on the secretive inner world of R. Kelly, bringing to light the shocking allegations of abuse and twisted mind games.”
In recent weeks, more women have stepped forward with new allegations of physical abuse and coercion against R. Kelly, who is also accused of maintaining what’s been likened to a “sex cult.” Kelly’s publicist, lawyer, DJ and personal assistant have all severed ties with the singer as public pressure against Kelly continues to mount, including a Time’s Up boycott to #MuteRKelly.
