Showtime Documentary has announced that “We Need To Talk About Cosby” will premiere on January 30 at 10 p.m., following the Sundance Film Festival’s premiere.
Directed by Emmy Award-winning W Kamau Bell, the four-part documentary series will delve into the influential Bill Cosby’s career and eventual downfall – over accusations of rape, drug sexual assault, sexual violence, and other forms of misconduct by more than 60 women. .
“When I was a child of Bill Cosby, I was a huge fan of all of his shows and wanted to be a comedian because of him,” Bell said in a statement. “I never thought I’d ever wrestle with who we all thought Cosby and who we understand now. I’m not sure he’d want me to do this job, but Cliff Hostable definitely will.”
Vinnie Malhorta, Executive Vice President of Reality Programming, Showtime Networks, added: “Kamau has bravely ventured into an extremely complex and nuanced area of Bill Cosby’s story, which has yet to be explored in such depth. It is an important and under-reported perspective on the legacy of one of the most famous artists. African Americans in History”.
Bill, Andrew Fried, Katie A. King, Dean Lilligaard, Jordan Wayne, and Sarena Roma serve as executive producers, while Geraldine Porras serves as co-executive producer. “We Need to Talk About Cosby” is a product of Boardwalk Pictures in association with WKB Industries for Showtime.
