PORN KING: THE RISE & FALL OF RON JEREMY

A compelling two-part documentary series exploring the rise and fall of the world’s biggest porn star, Ron Jeremy.

Ron Jeremy was an American porn legend 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 June 2020 Ron Jeremy was arrested in LA and charged with 35 counts of rape and sexual assault against 23 women.

As he awaits trial, this series digs deeper - with exclusive access to some of his alleged victims, key industry players and archive footage, the series will reveal the inside story of a world that most people know little about.

Looking back over four decades at an industry that has been transformed by the internet, the series will show how the porn industry has evolved from the ‘Boogie Nights’ era of the 80s to Porn Hub and Only Fans today. Now at a tipping point post #MeToo, performers in the porn industry are no longer afraid to stand up for their rights and finally feel empowered to speak out against one of the most powerful men in porn.
