The description: “From director and producer Sarah Gibson, the Peacock Original documentary Stormy delves into the life and times of Stormy Daniels, as she shares her story and account of events that have become part of American history … the film takes the audience behind the curtain as Stormy navigates being a mother, an artist, and an advocate working hard to reinvent herself, while still grappling with the bombshell that went off in her life five years earlier. From reporters to lawyers to politicians, many have attempted to define Stormy Daniels. Stormy tells the unvarnished truth about an unlikely American icon — this time, in her own words.”
Former adult film star Stormy Daniels became a household name in 2018 when The Wall Street Journal reported that Daniels had had an affair with Donald Trump in 2006 and was paid $130,000 in “hush money” in 2016 to keep quiet about it. Trump denied the affair ever happened.
Trump is currently facing a 34-count Federal criminal indictment in New York charging him with falsifying business records in connection with the payoff. The case is expected to be the first of Trump’s four criminal cases to go to trial, though is also considered by legal experts to be the weakest of the cases against him.
Peacock will premiere the documentary Stormy on March 18.
