New “Frontline” Doc on Disgraced Producer Harvey Weinstein Available May 29 from PBS

PBS has announced the upcoming release of Frontline: Weinstein (DVD: $24.99), slated for May 29. Harvey Weinstein was once one of the most successful producers in Hollywood, but beneath the glitz and glamour there was a pattern of sexual misconduct going back to the very start of his career. Drawing on exclusive insider accounts, this documentary examines how Weinstein used lawyers and private detectives to help him suppress sexual harassment allegations, shining new light on what those around Weinstein knew about his behavior, and when. Filled with fresh insights from those who worked with Weinstein, those who tried to confront him, and the journalists who ultimately broke the story, Weinstein provides an in-depth look at the long history of allegations against the powerful producer.
