Known for her larger-than-life persona and memorable accent, “Miss Cleo,” born Youree Dell Harris, garnered a nationwide cult following on the Psychic Readers Network, a popular telephone hotline that later came under fire for its alleged deceptive practices.
Featuring interviews with celebrities, including actresses Raven-Symoné and Debra Wilson, and those closest to the self-proclaimed voodoo priestess, the film explores the many layers behind a complicated and charismatic figure.
Revisiting an era of corded phones and 1-900-numbers, “Call Me Miss Cleo” ultimately reveals the truth behind the ever-enigmatic woman who took TV by storm, only to abruptly disappear from public consciousness.
The famed TV psychic passed away in July 2016 at the age of 53.
The documentary is slated to premiere on HBO Max on December 15.
