An HBO documentary series about the upstate sex cult is inside the works, the cable neighborhood launched Thursday.
The series will observe a ramification of those who joined Nxivm and “take a deep, nuanced look at experiences of its members, spotlighting their universal desire for personal growth,” HBO said.
It could even check out the “emotional toll” of the practices of a bunch all through the group known as DOS, which prosecutors say branded ladies with chief Keith Raniere’s initials and groomed them to have sex with him.
Also included inside the upcoming doc can be the continuing licensed case in opposition to the purported self-help group on prices of sex-trafficking and racketeering. One of its excellent members, former “Smallville” TV actress Allison Mack pleaded accountable April 8 to racketeering and racketeering conspiracy prices, along with extortion and compelled labor.
The series might be directed by award-winning directors Jehane Noujaim and Karim Amer. Noujaim actually attended Nxivm’s introductory “Executive Success Program” workshop once more in 2010.
An air date hasn’t been set however.
