Oprah Winfrey is co-producing a documentary on sexual assault in the music industry for Apple TV+, reports the Los Angeles Times and Variety.

The documentary, produced by Winfrey with Impact Partners and Jane Doe Films, will follow a former music executive deciding to take public her story of assault and abuse by “a notable figure in the industry.”

Although the release from Apple did not identify either party, the Times, citing information from the Sundance Film Festival, where the film will debut, identified the former music executive as Drew Dixon, who was one of three women who alleged rape by Russell Simmons in a 2017 New York Times interview. Documentarians Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering (“The Invisible War,” “The Hunting Ground,” “The Bleeding Edge”) are directing and co-producing the film.
