Peacock Unveils First Look at Stormy Daniels Doc “Stormy”
Peacock has revealed the first look at documentarian Sarah Gibson’s (Orgasm inc: The Story of OneTaste) new film Stormy, centered on the life and times of Stephanie Clifford, aka Stormy Daniels, with Daniels sharing her story about becoming one of the most unlikely centers of political gravity in recent memory. Stormy is executive produced by Erin Lee Carr (Britney vs Spears), as well as Judd Apatow, Sara Bernstein, and Meredith Kaulfers.
Stormy promises to take viewers into Daniels’ life, which includes motherhood, her work as an artist and advocate, and her attempts to reassert control of her life after the tumultuous events that began in 2018 when The Wall Street Journal reported on Daniels’ affair with Donald Trump in 2006 and the subsequent money she was paid to keep that affair a secret during the 2016 election. It seemed like everyone in America had an opinion about Stormy Daniels, so Stormy is a chance for the woman at the center of the storm to tell her side of the story.
Daniels’ story, both the personal portion that will be explored in Stormy, as well as the aftermath of the payments she received, remain very much ongoing. One of Trump’s many legal battles includes the 34-count Federal criminal indictment he faces in New York are directly tied to the payments—he’s accused of falsifying business records in connection with the payment.
Check out the teaser below. Stormy arrives on Peacock on March 18:
