Jeffrey Epstein Survivor’s Will Get A Voice In Controversial Netflix Documentary Series

"Take him down," says one in newly released trailer. "Take everybody down"

Netflix has a habit of turning real-life controversies and turning them into binge-worthy series: Making A MurdererDon’t F*ck With Cats and Abducted In Plain Sight among the most talked about. The streaming services newest venture will dive into the controversial case of Jeffrey Epstein, a convicted sex offender and wealthy financier whose alleged death by suicide in 2019 sparked countless conspiracy theories. 

Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich is the new four-part series based on the book Filthy Rich: The Billionaire’s Sex Scandal — The Shocking True Story of Jeffrey Epstein by James Patterson and John Connolly and viewers will hear from survivors of Epstein’s sexual abuse. 

Director Lisa Bryant and Conversations With a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes filmmaker Joe Berlinger explore how Epstein, described as a “Gatsby-like figure of mystery,” was able to get away with sexually abusing underage girls for decades. It examines how the people close to Epstein — including ex-girlfriend and alleged co-conspirator Ghislaine Maxwell — may have aided him in his crimes, some of which allegedly took place on his private island nicknamed in the press as “Pedophile Island.”

Epstein was convicted in 2008 for soliciting an underage girl for prostitution and served 13 months in prison, although he was granted permission to leave each day for “work obligations”. He was arrested in July of 2019 for sex trafficking minors. One month later, he was found dead of an apparent suicide in his jail cell, something his lawyers — and plenty of theorists online — debate. 

Following Epstein’s death, survivors of his abuse want justice for everyone involved in his crimes, and, in Filthy Rich, speak out about how none of these people have been “held accountable” for their actions.
