Trailer for Jordan Peele-produced docuseries about Lorena Bobbitt sets premiere date

The series provides a fresh perspective on the story of Lorena Bobbitt and exposes how this event laid the groundwork for the modern 24-hour news cycle and increasing sensationalistic media coverage.

Amazon Prime Video has released the official trailer for Academy Award victor Jordan Peele's four-part documentary series titled Lorena.

Filmaker Joshua Rofé directed the docuseries, while Academy Award victor Jordan Peele was executive producer.

After signing on to produce the project previous year, Peele said he was "honored" to help Lorena tell her side of the infamous case.

Nangaa has blamed the delay in announcing results on the opposition's insistence on manual counting. He is known as the "people's soldier" for leading protests against President Kabila.

A re-examination of one of the most notorious cases of marital strife (and that's putting it very lightly) is coming to a screen near you. "With this project, Lorena has a platform to tell her truth as well as engage in a critical conversation about gender dynamics, abuse, and her demand for justice", Peele said. The clip closes with Bobbitt sitting down for a new interview, in which she says: "I didn't choose to be in the spotlight, but there's no going back".

Whilst John pursued a career in porn and appeared on shows like Howard Stern, recounting the story of how his wife threw his chopped off penis into a grassy field and how it was eventually reattached, Lorena took a rather different approach, becoming an advocate for domestic abuse victims. In 2016, he was profiled on the REELZ series, "Scandal Made Me Famous".

Following a "20/20" special cheekily titled, "The Bobbitts: Love Hurts" earlier this month with only John attached, Amazon is releasing its own docuseries on the couple, this time with Lorena's involvement.
