A first trailer has been released for Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich, a docuseries about the disgraced financier coming to Netflix at the end of the month.

The clip, unveiled on Wednesday, provides a glimpse into the documentary, giving voice to some of the women who have spoken out against Epstein.

It also touches on a 2008 non-prosecution agreement overseen by former Miami US Attorney Alexander Acosta.

Netflix’s description of the four-part series describes the programme as such: “Leading up to his 2019 arrest, mysterious tycoon Jeffrey Epstein was accused of abusing women and underage girls for decades, assembling a network of enablers to help carry out and cover up his crimes.

“Epstein came from humble beginnings yet managed to lie and manipulate his way to the top of the financial world. He eventually gained tremendous wealth and power while running an international sex trafficking ring.

“The serial sex abuser made a secret plea deal with the government in 2008 avoiding a potential life sentence and continued to abuse women.

“With their frightening firsthand accounts, Epstein’s accusers are the leading voices in director Lisa Bryant’s four-part docuseries Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich.

“By revealing their emotional scars, some for the very first time, the sisterhood of survivors intend to stop predators — and the American justice system — from silencing the next generation.”

Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich will be released on 27 May by Netflix.

It comes almost a year after Epstein’s death at a Manhattan jail, which occurred while he awaited trial on sex trafficking charges.
