Ready to delve into another crazy story? If you’re a true crime fan, the latest project you’ll want to look out for is the Jeffrey Epstein Netflix documentary. The new series is set to launch later this month and will take you inside the world of the late controversial figure.
You may have heard Epstein’s name in the news over the last year or so. The 66-year-old was awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges when he attempted suicide in the summer of 2019, BBC reports.
A month later, Epstein’s body was uncovered in a New York facility. The convicted sex offender died on August 10, 2019.
In their latest project, Netflix will take viewers into the world of the financial tycoon, sharing firsthand accounts from some of his accusers.
“He’s dead but did not act alone, none of them have been held accountable. The monsters are still out there. You took our freedom, now we’re going to take yours,” one woman can be heard saying in the trailer.
Days after his death, it was officially declared by the New York medical examiner that Epstein died by suicide.

Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich was directed by Lisa Bryant, who is known for her work on Unspeakable Crime: The Killing of Jessica Chambers. Joe Berlinger (Ted Bundy: Conversations with a Killer), will executive produce.
