Amazon Prime Video simply shared the inaugural trailer related to Jordan Peele’s executively-produced docuseries Lorena. The mini-series is centered across the true crime story of Lorena Bobbitt, a girl that lives on in infamy for reducing off her husband’s personal member. Lorena Bobbitt was subsequently tried earlier than a grand jury in a trial that garnered International protection in 1994. Thanks to Jordan Peele, we get a re-assessment.
Luckily, John Bobbitt’s penis was later surgically re-attached. He would later leverage his “fame” by showing in a WWE tag crew bout with Val Venis, a wrestler finest remembered for his (pelvic) towel unveilings. As you will see within the trailer posted under, Jordan Peele’s docuseries will focus totally on the trial itself, and a newly-revised narrative, within the voice of an abused lady (Lorena) pushed to her limits.
Amazon Prime’s personal descriptors make reference to John Bobbitt as an abusive accomplice. “John and Lorena Bobbitt’s dueling narratives exploded in a ravenous 24-hour information cycle, igniting a renewed battle of the sexes. Lorena grew to become a nationwide joke, her struggling ignored by the male-dominated press. But as John spiraled downward, Lorena discovered power within the scars of her ordeal,” the trailer’s description states.
The sequence, directed by Joshua Rofé, and executively-produced by Jordan Peele, is slated to premiere at Sundance Film Festival later this month, earlier than it turns into accessible to Amazon Prime subscribers on February 15th.
