Peacock has shared a first look at Stormy, an original documentary film chronicling the scrutinized life of Stormy Daniels. The film will launch on Peacock on Monday, March 18, 2024.
From reporters to lawyers to politicians, many have attempted to define Stormy Daniels. Stormy tells the unvarnished truth about an unlikely American icon — this time, in her own words.
Stormy is directed and produced by Emmy Award-nominated Sarah Gibson, known for her work on such documentary feature films and series as Orgasm Inc: The Story of OneTaste, Britney vs Spears, I.O.U.S.A, LA 92, and The China Hustle.
Two-time Emmy Award-nominated filmmaker Erin Lee Carr, director of Britney vs Spears and Mommy Dead and Dearest, will also serve as producer.
The film is executive produced by Emmy Award-winning Judd Apatow of Apatow Productions (George Carlin’s American Dream, The Zen Diaries of Garry Shandling) alongside Sara Bernstein and Meredith Kaulfers from Imagine Documentaries (The Super Models, Judy Blume Forever). Emelia Brown will also serve as producer.
From director and producer Sarah Gibson, the Peacock Original documentary Stormy delves into the life and times of Stormy Daniels as she shares her story and account of events that have become part of American history.
The film takes the audience behind the curtain as Stormy navigates being a mother, an artist, and an advocate, working hard to reinvent herself while still grappling with the bombshell that went off in her life five years earlier.
