Ready or not, here it is: The four-part documentary series from director Lisa Bryant and producers Joe Berlinger and James Patterson, Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich, will debut on Netflix on May 27th, ahead of the Memorial Day weekend. The series doesn’t appear as though it will explore the conspiracy theories surrounding Epstein and his death. Rather, story is told from the perspective of Epstein’s survivors.

Here’s the logline:

“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. 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.”

There may not be a lot of new information in the series, but it will finally give voice to Epstein’s victims.
