According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ronan Farrow has signed a three-year development deal with HBO to make “a series of investigative documentary specials” for the premium cable network. In addition to that, he’ll also “produce topical pieces for HBO’s other platforms.” This comes just a few months after Farrow wrote a harrowing piece for The New Yorker that helped bring Harvey Weinstein’s alleged history of sexual assault to light (as well as a follow-up piece about the army of spies Weinstein supposedly employed to discredit and intimidate his accusers).

In a statement, HBO programming president Casey Bloys highlighted Farrow’s work with The New Yorker, saying he’s done “extraordinary, revelatory reporting” for the magazine and noting that he “helped to propel a string of other investigations, breakthroughs, and overdue conversations.” Bloys went on to say that HBO is “excited to provide a platform for this dogged reporter to pursue projects that continue to speak truth to power.”


Despite the HBO deal, Farrow will retain his position with The New Yorker.
