Documentary about Ghislaine Maxwell coming soon on Channel 4
If it's anything like the Jeffrey Epstein documentary, it will certainly have people talking
A documentary about Ghislaine Maxwell is coming to Channel 4 soon, it has been announced.
A number of allegations are made against Maxwell in the Netflix documentary, Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich, where it is alleged that Maxwell played a pivotal part in the sex crimes committed by Epstein.
Since the release of the documentary, she was arrested by the FBI for the abuse of children, among other crimes.
The upcoming documentary, titled Who is Ghislaine Maxwell? is being produced by Katherine Haywood, with Channel 4’s Fozia Khan as commissioning editor.
Commenting on the project, Danny Horan, Channel 4's Head of Factual, said: "There are likely to be numerous programmes made about the Maxwells, but this film focuses on the much-loved daughter whose charm, influence and family name was used in the most powerful circles over decades.
"This investigation seeks to uncover her role in one of the world's most prominent current scandals. This exploration of Ghislaine's life will include revelatory brand new testimony from those who knew her best. Shedding light on how and why, despite the rumours, she was able to sustain her privileged lifestyle for such a long time."
No release date has been confirmed for the documentary as of yet, but The Hollywood Reporter says that it is set to include interviews with Maxwell’s friends, lovers, colleagues, rivals and confidantes, "many of whom producers say haven’t spoken publicly before."
