Channel 4 is to explore the rise and fall of the world’s biggest porn star, Ron Jeremy, in a new two-part documentary.
Ron Jeremy was an American porn star who crossed over into the mainstream. He became an icon who rubbed shoulders with Hollywood stars and performed in more than 2,500 films. But in August this year, Jeremy was indicted in an LA court for 30 counts of rape and sexual assault, against 21 women.
As Ron Jeremy awaits trial, a new two-part documentary series, Downfall of the Porn King: The Ron Jeremy Story (w/t) from BriteSpark Films will explore the rise and fall of a man known around the world as the unlikely king of porn.
The production has exclusive access to some of his alleged victims, key industry players and archive.
Channel 4's Anna Miralis said: “The access BriteSpark have gained to major players in this story will make the series a compelling watch. The porn industry is having to find a way to work in our post #MeToo world, but with a dark and complicated past it will be fascinating to explore through the eyes of many women involved in the industry.”
