The groundbreaking, explosive documentary series sparked a world-wide conversation, and Part II will unravel the saga even further. The three-night event will feature interviews with new survivors, supporters, psychologists, as well as cultural and legal experts who will offer even more insights into the R&B singer who is currently facing charges.
