Santa Monica, California -
**June 8, 2022 **- STARZ announces its new documentary "Who is Ghislaine Maxwell?" premiering on **Friday, June 24 **ahead of Ghislaine Maxwell's sentencing on June 28 for her involvement in the Jeffrey Epstein case. The three-part documentary pulls back the curtain to provide a deeper look into how Maxwell, a woman of such elite status and privilege, ended up on trial for insidious abuse. Featuring exclusive interviews with Maxwell's friends, rivals and confidants - many of whom have never spoken publicly before - the documentary offers a revealing insight into her personal life and true nature.
"Who is Ghislaine Maxwell?" premieres Friday, June 24 at midnight on the STARZ app, all STARZ streaming, and on-demand platforms. On linear, it will debut on Sunday, June 26 on STARZ at 9:00 ET/PT in the U.S. with subsequent episodes dropping weekly.
The case of Jeffrey Epstein is one of the darkest stories of our time. A story of vast wealth, abuse and utter corruption played out in society's highest and most powerful echelons. Intimately tied to it is Ghislaine Maxwell. She was tried and convicted, but she is now waiting her sentencing. She faces sentencing on her conviction of sex trafficking of underage girls, which could see her jailed for decades. The alleged procuress for Epstein, Maxwell's reputation is now under scrutiny. But who is she and how did she go from life in an English stately home to a prison cell in New York?
This new documentary will question who and what Maxwell really is and focuses on key stages in her life, revealing insight into her personal life and true nature. "Who is Ghislaine Maxwell?" includes compelling interviews with a diverse range of subjects, including victims - some who have never shared their story before - and former friends of Maxwell's who illuminate her trajectory from a privileged childhood in Oxford, to the elite worlds of London and New York, to her descent into the Brooklyn State Penitentiary. The documentary also follows the events of the trial in New York in Autumn 2021 with access to legal proceedings, journalists and contributors close to the trial.
Dorothy Byrne, Executive Producer, "We have grown used to stories of men preying on young women. The story of Ghislaine Maxwell shocks and fascinates because she was a woman who preyed on young women. She used the fact that she was a middle-aged woman with a cut-glass English accent to lure vulnerable young women."
The documentary is produced by All3Media and in collaboration with Roast Beef Productions. Executive producers are Mike Lerner (Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer, The Great Hack - Netflix, "The Vow" - HBO Max) and Dorothy Byrne (Leaving Neverland). Katherine Haywood (Starbucks and Nespresso: The Truth About Your Coffee, Cashing in on Brexit) is producer and Erica Gornall (Saudi Women's Driving School) serves as director.
Alice Dickens Koblin, Head of Unscripted Programming and C. Brett Marottoli, Head of Program Acquisitions are overseeing "Who is Ghislaine Maxwell?" on behalf of STARZ.
