Lifetime is working on a follow up to the hit docuseries “Surviving R. Kelly” and a new series focusing on accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein.
“The Aftermath” will be a four-part series featuring interviews with additional survivors, psychologists, and experts on the Kelly case.
After the show aired in January, the singer was indicted on 18 counts of serious sexual misconduct and other charges. Kelly has pleaded not guilty.
“Surviving R. Kelly” was nominated for an Emmy for best informational series or special and has been seen by 26.8 million people, according to the network.
“Surviving Jeffrey Epstein,” which is currently in development, will tell the story of the multimillionaire businessman who hobnobbed with such famous figures as President Donald Trump and former President Bill Clinton and was a fixture at Hollywood events.
The 66-year-old is accused of sexually abusing and trafficking underage girls and collecting child pornography.
He was previously convicted of soliciting an underage girl for prostitution in 2008, but got a controversial plea deal in which he served only a year in jail.
Epstein was arrested July 6 for the alleged sexual abuse of dozens of young girls between 2002 and 2005.
