A&E To Premiere 'Cosby: The Women Speak' Tonight

A&E will premiere Cosby: The Women Speak, a provocative one-hour special offering intimate interviews with some of Bill Cosby’s accusers detailing his perfect storm of fame, power and rapid professional decline following mounting allegations by dozens of women. New and past accusers tell us their story to help piece together the downfall of one of the most respected entertainers in American history. First-hand accounts from the women themselves help examine the allegations, decade by decade to reveal new information and insight into the case. Cosby: The Women Speak will premiere Thursday, September 17th at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

As new allegations of sexual and other misconduct are leveled against comedian Bill Cosby, a horrific story is emerging of alleged assaults, drugging, unwanted advances and molestation of young women. Compelling interviews with over one dozen women, including actress Louisa Moritz, publicist Joan Tarshis and model Beverly Johnson, are seen throughout the special. We also examine what happened when Hannibal Burress’ standup went viral and how Cosby’s spokespeople have been responding since the firestorm of allegations began. Finally, we hear from the accusers about why they have come forward, how this story began and what’s next.

Cosby: The Women Speak is produced for A&E by Lincoln Square Productions. Jeanmarie Condon serves as senior executive producer and Melia Patria serves as executive producer for Lincoln Square Productions. Executive producers for A&E are Shelly Tatro and Brad Abramson. This special is the first of four specials from Lincoln Square that will air on A&E.
