“Monica Lewinsky has teamed with ‘Catfish’ co-host and producer Max Joseph to produce ’15 Minutes of Shame,’ a documentary for HBO Max about the culture of public shaming,” Variety reports.
The report notes that Lewinsky is something of an expert on the subject.
“Lewinsky was in the eye of such a storm starting in 1998 when the bombshell story broke that the former White House intern had a sexual relationship with President Bill Clinton,” Variety reports. “More recently, Lewinsky has emerged as an anti-bullying activist and media maven. She’s been recruited to help Ryan Murphy and his team produce the next season of FX’s ‘American Crime Story’ franchise, which will revolve around the fin de siecle White House drama in which she had a starring role.”
Sarah Aubrey, head of original content for HBO Max, is quoted in the story saying: “Monica Lewinsky is an anti-bullying activist with unparalleled authority, making her the perfect partner for this project. And Max’s strong advocacy for social justice and distinctive storytelling make him particularly well-suited to explore this complex modern phenomenon.”
