On The Record, the documentary about Russell Simmons, has been acquired by HBO, shortly after its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival.

The production is definitely an intriguing one, as it revolves around all allegations of rape and sexual assault several woman claim they had to deal with.

“The fierce determination of Drew Dixon and all the women who bravely chose to share their stories in On the Record moved us profoundly,” said Sarah Aubrey, head of original content at HBO Max, according to an official statement.

Initially, the movie, showing women talking about their relationships with Russell Simmons, was supposed to appear on Apple+ TV. Still, after Oprah Winfrey announced that she’s stepping away from the project, Apple also wanted to do the same thing.
