‘Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich’: Release date, plot, trailer and everything on Netflix’s docu with his accusers
With their frightening firsthand accounts, Epstein’s accusers are the leading voices in director Lisa Bryant’s four-part docuseries ‘Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich’
Despite international fame, and an inordinate amount of wealth and power, both, the life and death of billionaire Jeffrey Epstein remains covered in a shroud of mystery. A new Netflix four-part documentary series, from the creators of the acclaimed ‘Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes’ attempts to take a hard look at the life of the billionaire who had multiple allegations of sexual assault and pedophilia against him. Presenting: ‘Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich’.
‘Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich’ will drop on Netflix on May 27.
Per Netflix’s official synopsis of the documentary series, “Leading up to his 2019 arrest, mysterious tycoon Jeffrey Epstein was accused of abusing women and underage girls for decades, assembling a network of enablers to help carry out and cover up his crimes. Epstein came from humble beginnings yet managed to lie and manipulate his way to the top of the financial world.”
Epstein eventually gained tremendous wealth and power while running an international sex trafficking ring, notes Netflix, adding, “The serial sex abuser made a secret plea deal with the government in 2008 avoiding a potential life sentence and continued to abuse women.”
With their frightening firsthand accounts, Epstein’s accusers are the leading voices in director Lisa Bryant’s four-part docuseries ‘Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich’. By revealing their emotional scars, some for the very first time, the sisterhood of survivors intend to stop predators -- and the American justice system -- from silencing the next generation.
‘Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich’ is the combined effort of RadicalMedia, James Patterson Entertainment production, and Third Eye Motion Picture Company. The series is executive produced by filmmaker Joe Berlinger, who has a rich experience in creating true crime documentaries.
His body of work includes titles such as, ‘Paradise Lost: The Child Murders at Robin Hood Hills’, ‘Crude’, ‘Whitey: United States of America v. James J. Bulger’, ‘Intent To Destroy: Death, Denial and Depiction’, and ‘Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes’.
Director Lisa Bryant too brings her experience in working with documentaries as well. She has been a writer for ‘What History Forgot’, and a producer for ‘Unspeakable Crime: The Killing of Jessica Chambers’, ‘Gone: The Forgotten Women of Ohio’, and ‘Stalked: Someone's Watching’.
The trailer for ‘Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich’ that dropped on Wednesday, May 13, begins with the announcement of Epstein's mysterious death. Over a montage of Epstein’s photos and photos of his properties, the voice-overs from different commentators chronicle the myriad questions surrounding his life, accusations of pedophilia, his private island, notoriously nicknamed “Pedophile Island”, and the circumstances around his death.
The documentary series, as the trailer suggests, brings forth testimony from not just survivors, but also investigative journalists, as it tries to examine the extent of the impunity the billionaire enjoyed through a network of corruption, that reached as high as Donald Trump, now the President of the U.S.
