Investigation Discovery will premiere the TV special Bill Cosby: An American Scandal on June 5th, detailing the accused actor’s rise to fame and his downfall amid sexual assault accusations from over 50 women.
The documentary includes interviews with one of his many accusers, including Shawn Brown, as well as biographer Ronald L. Smith and attorney Gloria Allred, who is representing 33 of his accusers.
The infamous accusations, including drugging his victims before sexually molesting them, have upset fans and Cosby alike. He maintains his innocence and claims that all the women are lying.
A legend in the world of #comedy — #BillCosby is now living in fear of the unknown similar to what his alleged victims went thru as a result of his wrongdoings. Cosby is #paranoid that someone will slip something into his food or drink, therefore, refusing to stay at local hotels and opting to fly his private jet to the courthouse from his Philadelphia home. #sexualassualt #case #trial #drugging #rumors #TheQueenDynasty #CelebrityGossip
Dave Chapelle recently included the scandal in his Netflix special, talking about how the allegations have upset him and shattered the image of his childhood hero.
The Investigation Discovery special is just one of many that have aired since the scandal came to light.
Cosby, 79, goes to trial on June 5th, the same day the ID special airs. The jury will be voting on three charges of aggravated indecent assault of Andrea Constant, according to court documents. Constant is one of the few women who are able to take Cosby to court because the statute of limitations has expired for many other alleged victims.
Bill Cosby: An American Scandal premieres Monday, June 5th, at 9 p.m. ET.
Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves
To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.
But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.
“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”
In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.
When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”
Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”
Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
