ABC News will air a special this week on the Bill Cosby criminal case that is playing out in Pennsylvania. The announcement comes after a judge ruled earlier this week that sufficient evidence exists to try Cosby on sexual assault charges.
The network will air “Cosby on Trial” Friday, May 27, as part of the “20/20” series. The broadcast is set for 10 p.m. ET.
“Elizabeth Vargas brings the latest news in ‘Cosby on Trial’ — a legal battleground that now includes both civil and criminal actions across several jurisdictions — including Cosby’s new defamation counterclaims against some of his accusers,” ABC News announced.
The announcement adds: “Friday night ’20/20′ updates the A&E documentary ‘Cosby: The Women Speak,’ produced by ABC’s Lincoln Square Productions. It is a dramatic and provocative show offering intimate interviews with several of Bill Cosby’s accusers, detailing their stories and claims of victimization by the legendary comedian and actor.”
