Lifetime will host a documentary series and full-length movie about allegations against R. Kelly, Billboard reports. The network announced on Monday that it will reboot its Emmy-winning Violence Against Women public affairs campaign with a focus on the many allegations of sexual misconduct R. Kelly has seen over decades. It's the second documentary about R. Kelly's history of abuse allegations announced this year, following BBC's R. Kelly: Sex, Girls and Videotapes.

The Lifetime projects, which as yet are unnamed, will reportedly include interviews with alleged survivors of the singer's abuse, as well as members of "his inner circle," attempting to "lift the veil on the secretive inner world of R. Kelly, bringing to light the shocking allegations of abuse and twisted mind games."

“Some very brave black women have trusted us with their stories, their truth and their trauma,” executive producer dream hampton told Billboard. “They are survivors and I’m honored to share their stories with the world.”
