Grand Ballroom E
Earlier this month, Lifetime aired Surviving R. Kelly, a six-part docuseries detailing allegations of sexual abuse against R&B musician R. Kelly. The series, which featured many individuals speaking publicly for the first time, has reached over 24.5 million viewers and became the network’s most-watched non-fiction series in seven years, sparking a national conversation that continues now. This session will bring together executive producers, network executives and a survivor participant in the series to discuss the 18-month process of putting it together, the challenges along the way, and the controversy and cultural conversation ignited by their efforts.
