Discovery Networks International is investigating the Internet’s role in modern relationships in an hour-long special titled Sex, Lies and Online Affairs.
The documentary special, to be produced by Mentorn Productions, comes in response to the recent hack of adult affairs website AshleyMadison.com, which affected millions of users worldwide. According to DNI, the special “asks whether or not infidelity sites are fulfilling an existing need or a malevolent force encouraging adultery.”
The special will air across DNI’s factual entertainment and lifestyle networks across the globe in late September, and features the personal stories of those who have been unfaithful using the web, as well as celebrity accounts of their experiences with privacy disruption. The special looks to raise awareness about Internet hacks, the reasoning and motivation behind adultery, and the effects of a violation of privacy.
