Monica Lewinsky will executive produce a documentary for HBO Max called 15 Minutes of Shame. Alongside Lewinsky, Catfish director Max Joseph will also help to put together the documentary. As described, the documentary will take a closer look at “public shaming epidemic in our culture.”
HBO Max’s Head of Original Content Sarah Aubrey said, “Monica Lewinsky is an anti-bullying activist with unparalleled authority, making her the perfect partner for this project.”
Aubrey added, “And Max’s strong advocacy for social justice and distinctive storytelling make him particularly well-suited to explore this complex modern phenomenon.”
There is no definitive release date for the documentary yet. However, HBO’s highly anticipated streaming service, HBO Max, is set to debut in the spring of 2020. The streaming platform will feature fan favorites such as The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, The Sopranos, Friends and many more classic series. In addition, HBO’s newest platform will feature new unscripted series and documentaries.
Lewinsky also plans to produce a new season of FX’s American Crime Story, which will follow the impeachment of President Clinton through her eyes. The latest season of the series will also debut in 2020.
