While very few details have been revealed, a press release says the film will follow “a brilliant former music executive who grapples with whether to go public with her story of assault by a notable figure in the music industry. The film is a profound examination of race, gender, class and intersectionality, and the toll assaults take on their victims and society at large.”

The upcoming documentary is the second project Winfrey has collaborated on with Apple TV+, she’ll also launch a new show titled “Oprah’s Book Club”.
