‘Working with Weinstein’ will explore the disgraced Hollywood producer’s relationship with the British film industry.
The programme will air as part of Channel 4’s ‘Dispatches’ series and “meets people who worked with Weinstein across 30 years of British film and investigates how we kept his accusers quiet for decades”.
More than 80 women have accused Weinstein of inappropriate behaviour ranging from rape to intimidation and from bullying to sexual assault. He is also the subject of a Scotland Yard police investigation.
Weinstein had close ties to the UK throughout his career and regularly funded and produced movies from British filmmakers. Another 90-minute documentary about Weinstein will be shown on the BBC later in the year.
‘Working with Weinstein’ airs on Channel 4 on February 20th at 10pm.
