Over one dozen women, including actress Louisa Moritz, publicist Joan Tarshis and model Beverly Johnson, will detail their experiences during the A&E special in order to help piece together the downfall one of the most respected entertainers in American history.
In addition to the scandal, the special will also examine what happened when Hannibal Burress’ standup went viral, how Cosby’s spokespeople have been responding since the firestorm of allegations began, why the accusers decided to come forward now and what lies ahead.
