Channel 4 has commissioned a new Kevin Spacey doc series from Roast Beef Productions.

The series is co-produced by Roast Beef and All3Media International.

Spacey Unmasked will take a “forensic look at one of the most powerful and respected actors in the world” from his childhood to his rise to stardom and his fall from grace.

The series will follow the outcomes of two court cases against Spacey: the civil case to be heard in New York In October brought by actor Anthony Rapp and the impending criminal case recently commenced in the UK , brought by three anonymous men

Roast Beef is the Oscar nominated indie behind films including The Square, Hell and Back Again and Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer.

The director is Ben Steele. Kathy Haywood is the producer and Dorothy Byrne and Mike Lerner are the exec producers.

“Kevin Spacey is one of the most highly honoured and admired actors of our age,” said Byrne. “His brilliance has won him two Oscars and multiple other awards. Critically acclaimed on both sides of the Atlantic for his film work, he led the Old Vic for 11 years of remarkable success, becoming one of the most important figures in London’s cultural life, a friend to some of its leading figures, making regular appearance in society columns. These films will follow the unfolding story of the allegations of abuse against him and the resulting court cases.”
