Apple acquires untitled documentary presented by Oprah Winfrey

Apple has acquired an untitled documentary presented by Oprah Winfrey and by Oscar-nominated filmmakers Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering about alleged sexual misconduct in the music industry, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Set to debut next year, Dick and Ziering’s latest documentary will follow a former music executive who grapples with whether to go public with her story of assault and abuse by a notable figure in the music industry. It will likely launch on the Apple TV+ streaming service, but it could pop up in movie theaters first.

Ziering and Dick were nominated for an Oscar and won two news and documentary Emmys and a Peabody for The Invisible War, their documentary about rape within the ranks of the U.S. military. And their 2015 film The Hunting Ground, an exposé of sexual assault on college campuses, was Emmy-nominated and won a Producer’s Guild Award.
