When journalist Ronan Farrow's 2017 New Yorker article dropped, his groundbreaking investigation and reporting of the sexual abuse allegations against movie producer Harvey Weinstein sent shockwaves through Hollywood. And frankly, the world. Five days after journalists Meghan Twohey and Jodi Kantor broke the news via their revolutionary New York Times article; Farrow's piece was another long-awaited blow. One, which earned him a Pulitzer Prize. Two years later, his best-selling book detailing the difficulties and challenges of his investigation hit shelves; and now, a documentary, Catch and Kill: The Podcast Tapes, is bringing those moments to the screen.
The six-part documentary will offer an intimate and first-hand insight into the making of the article. Revealing the tell-all interviews with the whistle-blowers, journalists, private investigators and other sources that were conducted as part of the investigation. Through this, the documentary promises to offer another in-depth look at the Weinstein scandal; as well as never-before-seen footage and new insights that continue to expand Farrow's investigation.
Watch the official trailer for Ronan Farrow's Catch and Kill: The Podcast Tapes below.
According to HBO, Catch and Kill: The Podcast Tapes, will shed a light on "not just on the harrowing effort to expose one powerful predator, but on the systems that help cover up the terrible crimes to this day."
If you're wondering how you can watch the harrowing docuseries here in Australia; the new series will debut with two back-to-back episodes on BINGE on July 13. Otherwise, you will also be able to catch the upcoming series on Foxtel Showcase.
Farrow's investigation isn't the only journalistic work coming to our screens. Earlier this year, it was confirmed that Twohey's and Kantor's best-selling novel She Said, about their own reporting is being turned into a film. Actors Carey Mulligan and Zoe Kazan have been confirmed to portray the two lead reporters; so we know this adaptation will be nothing short of Oscar-worthy.
