Netflix Documentary Series Filthy Rich Exposes Jeffrey Epstein Crimes

Netflix Documentary Series Filthy Rich Exposes Jeffrey Epstein Crimes

Netflix is releasing a new docu-series centring around the 'relentless manipulation and sexual trafficking' perpetrated by Jeffrey Epstein.

The series, entitled Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich, was announced by the Netflix US Twitter account and it is not yet clear whether it will be released internationally.

A brief synopsis reads: "The series exposes a horrifying story of relentless manipulation and sex trafficking. Epstein's survivors serve as the series' pre-eminent voices, providing powerful testimonials about their experiences, and inspiration in their resilience."

The series will stream later this year, though an exact date is yet to be confirmed.

Epstein was found dead in his jail cell at Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York on 10 August 2019 aged 66. The cause was given as suicide by hanging, though this is disputed, with the violations of normal jail procedures and his purported knowledge of incriminating information about rich and famous people leading some to believe he was murdered.

He had been arrested on 6 July on federal charges of the sex trafficking of minors in Florida and New York and the case was still pending at the time of his death.

Filthy Rich isn't the only docu-series about the man we can expect this year. It was announced in January that the team behind Surviving R Kelly would be making a four-hour special about him too.

US cable channel Lifetime commissioned the series, which is expected to air in summer.

A&E, Lifetime's parent company, said in a statement: "Lifetime expands its footprint in the investigative doc space with development on Surviving Jeffery Epstein, centring on the billionaire New York financier who is alleged to have used his connections to the rich and famous to shield his predatory behaviour with young girls.

"Accused of sex crimes with minors and trafficking, registered sex offender Epstein allegedly hid in plain sight while enablers protected him for over two decades, until his arrest by the FBI."
