Ronan Farrow signs 3-year deal with HBO

It's official. Ronan Farrow has signed an exclusive three-year television deal with HBO that will begin later this year.

"Ronan Farrow's extraordinary, revelatory reporting for the New Yorker has helped to propel a string of other investigations, breakthroughs and overdue conversations", said Casey Bloys, president, HBO programming.

The journalist who exposed decades-long sexual allegations against Harvey Weinstein is working with HBO for a series of documentaries. In addition, Farrow will produce and host other topical, newsworthy pieces for HBO's various platforms, to be announced as they are confirmed. His stories will continue to document the abuse of power by individuals and institutions, and will proceed in tandem with ongoing reporting for the New Yorker, which he is joining as a contributing writer.

Ronan is the son of Mia Farrow and Woody Allen, and he wrote about the "culture of acquiescence" around his father in a 2016 guest column for The Hollywood Reporter, arguing that his sister Dylan Farrow's claims of abuse at the hands of her father had been dismissed due to a toxic standard of complicity between Hollywood power players and industry press. He also penned an explosive examination of Weinstein's army of enablers, including lawyers, publicists, agents, gossip media toadies - and corporate investigative firms, which Weinstein employed to keep misconduct buried, although it was an open secret in Hollywood.

Farrow's HBO deal was first reported in January 10 by The Hollywood Reporter. "His work has contributed to this watershed moment in our culture, and we are excited to provide a platform for this dogged reporter to pursue projects that continue to speak truth to power". During this time, he started probing sexual allegations against Weinstein. But ultimately, network executives declined to move forward with the story and allowed him to take his reporting to The New Yorker, where the first of multiple Weinstein stories was published on October 10. The magazine published the first set of stories on October 10, 2017, causing a spiral of rage, controversy, and chaos in Hollywood.
