Foxtel and Binge have confirmed an Australian release date for the four-part HBO docuseries ALLEN v. FARROW, from award-winning investigative filmmakers Kirby Dick, Amy Ziering and Amy Herdy.

The revealing docuseries goes behind decades of sensational headlines to reveal the private story of one of Hollywood’s most notorious and public scandals: the accusation of sexual abuse against Woody Allen involving Dylan, his then seven-year-old daughter with Mia Farrow; their subsequent custody trial, the revelation of Allen’s relationship with Farrow’s daughter, Soon-Yi; and the controversial aftermath in the years that followed.

Once celebrated for their on-partnership both on and off screen, Farrow and Allen’s lives were irrevocably fractured and their sprawling family torn apart with the public disclosure of the abuse allegations and the vitriolic disputes that followed.

This gripping series interweaves new investigative work, meticulously pieced together via intimate home movie footage, court documents, police evidence, revelatory videotape and never-before-heard audio tapes, combined with exclusive, in-depth interviews on the subject with Mia Farrow, Dylan Farrow, Ronan Farrow, family friend Carly Simon, prosecutor Frank Maco, relatives, investigators, experts and other first-hand witnesses – many speaking publicly about the events for the first time.

The series also includes prominent cultural voices exploring Allen’s body of work in a broader context and reflecting on how public revelations about the personal lives of artists can lead to re-evaluations of their work.

ALLEN v. FARROW includes an intimate look at Farrow and Allen’s charmed courtship and emergence as one of Hollywood’s power couples, making thirteen influential films together over a decade.

Over time, Allen becoming a father figure to Farrow’s children as well as their shared children. Yet, threaded throughout their professional success and personal achievements there were dark undercurrents at play.

The docuseries examines the shattering effects of trauma on a family – and is a haunting depiction of the scepticism and backlash that can result from an accusation.

Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering’s groundbreaking films have profoundly impacted American institutions and culture, resulting in sweeping policy changes and far-reaching national discussions. Their work has been recognized by every major film and television award including: two Oscar nominations, an Emmy® and a Peabody.


ALLEN v. FARROW is an HBO Documentary Films production, in association with Impact Partners and Chicago Media Project, a Jane Doe Films Production.
