Netflix has released the first trailer for a documentary based on financial tycoon Jeffrey Epstein, who was accused and convicted of decades of sexual misconduct before committing suicide while in prison in 2019. The four-part documentary, which will be released on 27 May, will take a look at how Jeffrey was able to continue these acts for so long, having assembled a network of enablers to help cover up his crimes, and will feature firsthand accounts for several of his accusers.
