“Kevin Spacey’s spectacular fall from grace came amid allegations of inappropriate sexual behavior,” the synopsis continued. “In 2023 Spacey was acquitted of sexual offenses against four men in a U.K. trial. This two-part series will investigate Spacey’s conduct and talks to multiple men unconnected to that case about their experiences with Kevin Spacey, almost all of whom have never spoken before.”

Spacey Unmasked will air on the U.K.’s Channel 4 on May 6 and 7, with international release dates yet to be determined. Warner Bros. Discovery acquired multi-territory distribution rights for the documentary — including the U.S., where it is set to premiere on Max and ID.

In light of the documentary, a spokesperson for Spacey, 64, sent Variety a statement from the actor: “I’m honored to be starring in my first film with Warner Brothers in many years. I hope the Academy takes note of some of the great acting by the lesser known cast.”

The former House of Cards star was accused of sexual assault by several men in 2017, at the height of the #MeToo movement. On Oct. 29, 2017, Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp accused Spacey of making sexual advances on him when he was 14 years old.
