Court TV will be the only news organization covering the rape trial of Weinstein live as it happens and gavel-to-gavel when it begins. Court TV will be stationed adjacent to the New York City courthouse for the duration of the trial, with live reporting from inside and outside the courtroom. Court TV anchors will host the coverage, both live on-location in Manhattan and from the network's studios in Atlanta. Court TV reporters will take turns rotating in-and-out of the courtroom to provide constant live trial updates throughout the day. Courtroom sketches, exclusive interviews with players in the case and in-depth analysis by the country's brightest attorneys, most experienced investigators and experts will provide legal insights into the proceedings.
Weinstein faces charges of rape, sexual assault and predatory sexual assault and if convicted could spend the rest of his life in prison. 87 women in total have accused the entertainment mogul of sexual misconduct dating back decades. The accusations helped spark prominent recognition and rise of the #MeToo movement, in which hundreds of women have publicly accused powerful men in business, politics, the news media and entertainment of sexual harassment and abuse.
