BBC ordered documentary on producer Harvey Weinstein

Vastavam web: U K public broadcaster BBC has ordered a feature-length documentary on the rise and fall of producer Harvey Weinstein.The documentary will include interviews with “the many actresses who have been brave enough to tell their stories” sexual harassment and assault scandal, as well as producers, directors, actors, agents, lawyers, journalists and others, reported Variety.Production company Lightbox, founded by Academy Award- winning producer Simon Chinn and Emmy Award winner Jonathan Chinn, said it wants the documentary to tell “the definitive story of Weinstein’s career, fall from grace and Hollywood’s culture of abuse.”

Chinn, who has met the disgraced mogul once, said the BBC Two documentary would retell the Weinstein story in light of recent revelations and in the context of the wider culture in Hollywood.”As the story evolved, we started to think about the industry as a whole and the culture and complicity of the industry, and the question of how Harvey got away with that level of alleged behaviour and… Whether we are looking at a real watershed moment, he added.
