Monica Lewinsky working with HBO Max on documentary on public shaming

Monica Lewinsky is set to executive produce a documentary about public shaming.

“Fifteen Minutes of Shame” will ”feature individuals from around the globe who have been publicly shamed — while exploring the bullies, the bystanders, the media, psychologists, politicians and experts in between,” HBO Max announced Monday.

{mosads}Lewinsky, an anti-cyber bullying advocate, will also appear in the project. As a 22-year-old White House intern in the 1990s, Lewinsky was at the center of a media firestorm after then-President Clinton’s affair with her came to light.

Public shaming, the team behind the documentary said, is one of “the most pressing and unaddressed issues of modern life.”

Max Joseph, of MTV’s “Catfish,” will also serve as an executive producer. 

The film, according to a news release, will “take an in-depth look at the public shaming epidemic in our culture and explore our collective need to destroy one another.”

No word from HBO Max on a release date.
