More information is coming to light in the ongoing investigation involving comedian Bill Cosby and a string of rape and harassment allegations. NBC’s Dateline will feature a joint interview with 27 of the women accusing Cosby of drugging and sexually assaulting them. NBC News’ national correspondent Kate Snow will sit down in the same room with nearly half the women who have come forward to tell their stories about Cosby’s alleged crimes.
The hour-long special will give the women a chance to answer questions about their claims, respond to denial from Cosby’s legal team and the comedian himself, as well as, discuss their “personal recollections of assault, betrayal, and emotional distress,” the network said in a statement. Beverly Johnson, Cindra Ladd, and Lise-Lotte Lublin are just a few of the accusers who will be sharing their testimonies on during the broadcast.
Many of the women will be meeting face-to-face for the first time. Referred to as an “unwanted sisterhood” by one of the accusers, the women will engage in a powerful interview where they can not only share their similar accounts of abuse, but also use each other as beacons of strength.
