The four-part series focuses on the sexual abuse allegations made against the Annie Hall filmmaker in 1992 by his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow, which Allen has always denied.
Allen’s spokesperson had described the series as a “shoddy hit piece”, claiming that Allen was approached by filmmakers less than two months before the documentary’s release and “given only a matter of days ‘to respond’”.
Documentarian Amy Ziering addressed the claims of an unbalanced approach to the allegations in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, saying: “[Allen’s] perspective, his first-person testimony is included throughout the series.
“We have his own voice reading, his own writing, his press conferences in his words, his court testimony. His side is represented. And he’s welcome to do an interview [with us]. Standing offer. We’re sure that HBO would do a fifth episode. We’re here.”
The series’ lead investigative producer Amy Herdy also claimed that she had contacted Allen’s publicist back in 2018, but did not receive a response.
In the UK, the series is set to begin on Sky Documentaries tonight (15 March) at 9pm.
