Netflix recently released the first trailer for one of its newest series, Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich.
The trailer itself very much sets the tone for what to expect from the watch and promises an in-depth analysis of Epstein before, during, and after his prosecution. Interviewees express bewilderment at the sheer amount of wealth the man had accumulated as well as the unchecked power that came with it. Even though mountains of evidence piled up against him in relation to his heinous and disgusting crimes, Epstein was able to weasel his way out of situation after situation and any severe punishment with the help of his many many Benjamins.
The official synopsis from Netflix states of the limited series:
Leading up to his 2019 arrest, mysterious tycoon Jeffrey Epstein was accused of abusing women and underage girls for decades, assembling a network of enablers to help carry out and cover up his crimes. Epstein came from humble beginnings yet managed to lie and manipulate his way to the top of the financial world. He eventually gained tremendous wealth and power while running an international sex trafficking ring. The serial sex abuser made a secret plea deal with the government in 2008 avoiding a potential life sentence and continued to abuse women. With their frightening firsthand accounts, Epstein’s accusers are the leading voices in director Lisa Bryant’s four-part docuseries. By revealing their emotional scars, some for the very first time, the sisterhood of survivors intend to stop predators — and the American justice system — from silencing the next generation.
Based on James Patterson’s bestseller “Filthy Rich,” co-written by John Connolly with Tim Malloy, the four-part series Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich will be coming to Netflix on May 27th. Check it out and let us know what you think!
