Trump’s trial takes place from today in New York. Peacock’s Stormy is produced by Emmy-nominated Erin Lee Carr (I Love You, Now Die: The Commonwealth v. Michelle Carter) and producer/director Sarah Gibson (Orgasm Inc: The Story of One Taste), who were also behind the Britney vs. Spears explosive doc. “Our team is thrilled to have international rights for this sought-after documentary produced by two renowned filmmakers who specialize in portraying the stories of women exploited and harmed by the legal system,” said Lilla Hurst, Global Head of Acquisitions & Content Strategy, Blue Ant Studios. The documentary is currently streaming on Peacock in the U.S. and is executive produced by Emmy Award-winning Judd Apatow (George Carlin’s American Dream) alongside Emmy Award-winning Sara Bernstein and Meredith Kaulfers from Imagine Documentaries (The Super Models).
