The story of Woody Allen’s infamous relationship with Mia Farrow and her family is explored in a four-part documentary on HBO.
Directed by Oscar-nominated documentary filmmakers Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering, the series entitled “Allen v. Farrow” delves into one of Hollywood’s most public scandals – allegations that Allen sexually abused his then 7-year-old adopted daughter, Dylan . Allen has repeatedly denied the claim.
In the bitter custody battle that followed, it was found that Allen had a relationship with Farrow’s adopted daughter Soon-Yi Previn. Allen eventually married Previn.
HBO will debut the first episode of the series on February 21. New episodes will be broadcast on the following Sundays.
The series is reminiscent of HBO’s involvement in the Michael Jackson documentary “Leaving Neverland,” as both were shot in secret. Jackson was accused of pedophilia prior to his death in 2009. He denied the allegations.
