A number of women who have accused R. Kelly of sexual misconduct and abuse will all be a part of an upcoming Lifetime movie.
The controversial R&B star has a history of alleged abuse of underage African-American girls that largely has been unreported by mainstream media until recently. The series and untitled feature will focus on women who are emerging from the shadows to share their stories.
“What we’ve seen — in the last year in particular — is the tremendous power of women’s voices when given the opportunity to share their truth,” said Brie Miranda Bryant, SVP Unscripted Development and Programming at Lifetime. “But there are important stories still untold, stories of bravery, resilience and defiance that demand to be heard. This is one of those stories.”
Lifetime adds that the introduction of the docuseries will coincide with the relaunch their public affairs campaign, Stop Violence Against Women.
