It was the exposé that shook both Hollywood and the world and society as we know it. Sexual misconduct allegations against Harvey Weinstein took the media by storm when they first were revealed in October of 2017. His exposure prompted an avalanche of sexual misconduct allegations to be made against other people in power, finally sending the pendulum swinging in favor of victims of Hollywood’s culture of harassment.
Thanks to Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey of the New York Times and Ronan Farrow of the New Yorker, the movie mogul’s crimes were brought to the surface, and soon, will be brought to your TV screen.

The three reporters worked continuously to contact victims and break past the walls that Hollywood put up. Now, after receiving a Pulitzer Prize for their research, their investigative articles are being picked up by Plan B, Brad Pitt’s company. Megan Ellison of Annapurna Pictures will also be backing the work that still remains untitled.

According to The Guardian, the show won’t be focusing on Weinstein’s crimes and victims so much as it will focus on the tireless reporting and collection of information by each journalist. Think Oscar-winners like Spotlight and All the President’s Men.
Weinstein is still under investigation for his misconduct while one of his most prominent victims, Rose McGowan, has published an autobiography, Brave, and is still working for justice for victims. I’m not sure what to expect from this movie, but I’d say we’re all hungry for some justice and equality.
