Lifetime will be airing a follow-up to the docuseries “Surviving R. Kelly.”
The network is planning a two-hour special, “Surviving R. Kelly: The Impact,” hosted by Soledad O’Brien that will explore the effects the doc has had.
Variety report that the show will “examine the impact the documentary has had on culture globally and how it has elevated the dialogue around sexual violence and being a survivor.”
Since the initial release, that reopened several sexual abuse allegations that took place over decades, boycotts of the musician have taken place including Sony dropping Kelly from their label.
The Cook County attorney’s office arrested the R&B singer on 10 felony accounts of aggravated sexual assault from four victims. Another four states and federal entities have opened investigations into Kelly’s actions.
The two-hour special will includes interviews with legal experts, journalists, non-profit organizations and psychologists to examine the process that has taken place, including the now famous Gayle King interview.
“Surviving R. Kelly: The Impact” will air on May 4 at 10pm ET/PT on Lifetime.
