Showtime has released the trailer for the forthcoming documentary series, “We Need To Talk About Cosby.”
A four-part docu-series, directed by W. Kamau Bell, wrestles with the conversations of the #MeToo movement, focusing on Bill Cosby’s descent from “America’s Dad” to an alleged sexual predator.
The series explores the complex story of Cosby’s life and work, weighing his actions against his indisputable global influence through interviews with comedians, cultural commentators, journalists, and women who share their most personal, harrowing encounters with Cosby.
Through archival footage, Cosby reveals who he may have been all along – the antithesis of the principled, public figure who became a hero, not only to African American people but to all people.
Peeling back complex layers of the African American icon, “We Need To Talk About Cosby” offers viewers the chance to reconsider his mark in a society where rape culture, toxic masculinity, capitalism, and white supremacy is shaping how we re-evaluate sex, power, and agency.
The docu-series is set to premiere on Sunday, January 30th only on Showtime.
Watch the trailer below.
