HBO Documentary Films has slated the four-part series Allen v. Farrow from award-winning filmmakers Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering (On the Record, The Hunting Ground) and Amy Herdy.

The series investigates the accusation of sexual abuse against filmmaker Woody Allen involving Dylan, his then seven-year-old daughter with Mia Farrow; their subsequent custody trial and revealing of Allen’s relationship with Farrow’s daughter, Soon-Yi; and the controversial aftermath in the years that followed.

According to the network, the series will interweave new investigative work — home movie footage, court documents, police evidence, videotape and audio tapes — and interviews with Mia Farrow, Dylan Farrow, Ronan Farrow, their family friend Carly Simon, prosecutor Frank Maco (a district attorney at the time of the 1992 investigation), relatives, investigators, experts and other first-hand eyewitnesses.

The series also includes cultural voices exploring Allen’s body of work in a broader context.

Allen v. Farrow premieres Feb. 21 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HBO and HBO Max. A Jane Doe Films production, the series was produced in association with Impact Partners and the Chicago Media Project.

Dick and Ziering serve as directors and executive producers; Jamie Rogers produces alongside Herdy.

Additional executive producers are Dan Cogan, Tara Lynda Guber, Artemis Rising Foundation, Maiken Baird, Ian Darling, Steve Cohen & Paula Froehle, The Lozen Foundation, Debbie L. McLeod, Jenny Raskin and Geralyn White Dreyfous.

For HBO Sara Rodriguez is senior producer while Lisa Heller and Nancy Abraham executive produce.
