FX Networks has released the official teaser trailer for the forthcoming documentary series, “The Secrets of Hillsong.” 

Here’s the scoop on the four-part docuseries via Deadline

Directed by Stacey Lee, the docuseries will feature the first interviews from former pastors Carl and Laura Lentz following their public ouster from the church that had been mired in scandal after Carl Lentz admitted to an extramarital affair.

Vanity Fair’s initial reporting included allegations of sexual assault, bullying, and the double standards to which congregants of color and those who identify as queer were at times held.

The docuseries also features conversations with congregants navigating the still-unfolding global reckoning as the church faces a rash of fresh revelations.

Interviews include former congregants as well as others connected to the Hillsong story.

Executive Producer and Head of Documentary, Scout Productions,  Joel Chiodi shared:

With the depth and clarity of this project owed to the excellent reporting of Vanity Fair, and the perspectives of those speaking out for the very first time, we have been committed to telling a well-rounded and definitive story of Hillsong.

Because of these voices, along with unprecedented access to Carl and Laura Lentz, The Secrets of Hillsong offers new insights into how decades of scandal and corruption went unchecked within the church, and more importantly, at what it meant for the community left in their rubble.

FX Networks added, “With fresh reporting and analysis from journalists, historians, and policymakers, The Secrets of Hillsong goes beyond the sensational headlines and behind the velvet rope to examine the church’s long pattern of covering up misconduct to protect itself.”
