During its presentation at the Winter 2023 Television Critics Association Press Tour, FX announced that the two-part docuseries “The New York Times Presents: Sin Eater” premieres in full on March 10, 2023.
If you were famous and had a problem in the 1990s, Anthony Pellicano was the man you hired to make it go away. Hollywood’s dirtiest private investigator didn’t operate within the law to hide the sins of the rich and powerful. Pellicano’s victims accused him of harassing and intimidating them — in some cases ruining their lives forever. Ultimately, Pellicano went to prison for wiretapping and racketeering but now he’s out, and he’s talking. The Times obtained nearly the entire FBI case file, including audio recordings of Hollywood stars and powerbrokers that have never aired publicly. Using these tapes and confidential documents, “Sin Eater” investigates how the rich and powerful in Hollywood got an edge over the legal system and faced few consequences when Pellicano was exposed.
“Sin Eater” is produced and directed by John Pappas. Rachel Abrams and Liz Day of The Times are the reporters.
