HBO Documentary Films is currently in production on a documentary series exploring the NXIVM sex cult case with “The Square” directors Jehane Noujaim and Karim Amer helming.
The series will follow a range of people who joined the NXIVM self-improvement group and will take a “deep, nuanced look at experiences of its members, spotlighting their universal desire for personal growth”.
The case implicated former “Smallville” actress Allison Mack among others. Mack helped recruit women into NXIVM which was set up like a pyramid scheme. The leader of the group established a secret sex cult within the organization with ‘slaves’ branded with his initials in their pelvic areas.
Mack recently pleaded guilty in a Brooklyn federal court to her involvement in the NXIVM sex cult case.
