The documentary will focus on how people feel the need to destroy each other and the “public shaming epidemic in our culture.” Despite working behind the scenes, Lewinsky will also appear on camera.
“Monica Lewinsky is an anti-bullying activist with unparalleled authority, making her the perfect partner for this project,” Sarah Aubrey, head of original content at HBO Max, said. “And Max’s strong advocacy for social justice and distinctive storytelling make him particularly well-suited to explore this complex modern phenomenon.” (RELATED: New Season Of FX’s ‘American Crime Story’ Will Focus On Bill Clinton’s Sex Scandal With Monica Lewinsky)
