The same news outlet provided in-depth information about what viewers can expect from the documentary.
According to Deadline, it will be a three-hour special that will extremely tell the story of Maxwell and her mysterious connections. Maxwell, as quoted by Fox News, was “was once the heiress to the Maxwell fortune but whose life is rocked by a series of scandals and accusations when she meets Jeffrey Epstein, the serial sex offender.”
Per Variety, the documentary will feature several interviews and unseen videos of the whole Maxwell family. According to director Barbara Shearer, the scandal ignited questions especially since Maxwell is a female.
“This series sheds light on Maxwell’s path from her past to the present to unravel the enigma that she is, and takes us from the highest echelons of society to a Brooklyn jail cell awaiting trial while the world watches,” she went on.
Where’s Maxwell now?
On May 7, the attorneys for the British socialite filed the papers in Manhattan federal court defending Maxwell. They suggested that their client never got involved in recruiting teenage girls from 1994 to 2004 who ended up getting sexually abused.
She pleaded not guilty of the charges and currently stays inside her jail cell until her November trial. Her team already tried to free her on bail, one of the attempts include a $28.5 million bail package.
However, the judge and federal appeals court both refused to give her bail.
“No longer content to charge a 25-year-old case based on purported conduct in the 1990s,
the government now sweeps in the 2000s through the allegations of one person—Accuser-
4,” they wrote. Her lawyers also accused the government of blaming Maxwell for the crimes committed by Jeffrey Epstein.
The infamous sex trafficker was arrested in July 2019 for trafficking charges. He, reportedly, committed suicide in Manhattan federal jail.
