There is some significant news about Monica Lewinsky, who has just joined forces with HBO Max, a video on-demand service from WarnerMedia Entertainment set to launch in early 2020.

“The former Clinton impeachment figure-turned-activist will executive produce a documentary called ‘15 Minutes of Shame’ along with director Max Joseph,” wrote Rick Poreter, an analyst for The Hollywood Reporter. “Both will also appear on camera as they take an in-depth look at the ‘public shaming epidemic in our culture’ — and people’s collective need to destroy one another.”

HBO calls Ms. Lewinsky “an anti-bullying activist with unparalleled authority” and a perfect partner for the project.

“‘15 Minutes of Shame’ will feature well-known names as it takes an irreverent, roller-coaster ride through the world of public shaming,” HBO advised. “It will include subjects from around the world who have been publicly shamed and also explore the bullies, bystanders, media members, psychologists and experts in between

Ms. Lewinsky is a contributor to Vanity Fair, Ted Talks and other media projects. She also promotes such online hashtags as #clickwithcompassion and #Beanupstander.
