Monica Lewinsky, who knows a thing or two about the subject, will produce the documentary “15 Minutes of Shame” with Max Joseph (“Catfish”) for HBO Max. Focusing on celebrities who have been victims of public shaming, the film will include interviews with bullies, the media, experts, politicians and others weighing in on the subject.

Monica Lewinsky is an anti-bullying activist with unparalleled authority, making her the perfect partner for this project,” HBO Max original content head Sarah Aubrey said. “And Max’s strong advocacy for social justice and distinctive storytelling make him particularly well-suited to explore this complex modern phenomenon.”

Lewinsky is also among the producers of “Impeachment: American Crime Story,” about her involvement in the scandal that rocked Bill Clinton’s presidency. Beanie Feldstein plays Lewinsky in the miniseries, which will premiere in September 2020 on FX.
