Over the past 25 years, multiple women have accused singer R. Kelly of sexual, mental and physical abuse. The singer was charged with child pornography in 2000, and in recent years of holding women against their will in a “sex cult.” While Kelly was acquitted of the child-pornography charges and has never been convicted of any such crimes, the accusations continue.

The Lifetime network has collected multiple accusers in “Surviving R. Kelly,” a six-hour docuseries will air in three installments: Thursday, January 3rd at 9 p.m. ET/PT; Friday, January 4th at 9 p.m. ET/PT; and Saturday, January 5th at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

The project includes over 50 interviews, featuring R&B singer Sparkle, (a former Kelly protégé) , John Legend, talk show host Wendy Williams and civil rights activist Tarana Burke.
