The series is a groundbreaking reinvestigation of deep moral issues and painful human tragedies.

Amazon Prime Video will release Lorena, a four-part Prime Original documentary series, on February 15.

Directed by acclaimed documentary filmmaker Joshua Rofé (Lost for Life) with Jordan Peele as executive producer, Lorena reveals the hidden truths in the notorious case of John Wayne and Lorena Bobbitt and challenges the long-held narrative about this event.

The series provides a fresh perspective on the story and exposes how it laid the groundwork for the 24-hour news cycle and increasingly sensationalistic media coverage.

Lost in tabloid coverage and late-night talk-show jokes, the Bobbitt story was a missed opportunity for a national discussion on domestic and sexual assault in America.

Lorena is a groundbreaking reinvestigation of the deep moral issues and painful human tragedies buried at the heart of this infamous scandal.

Prime members will be able to stream the series exclusively via the Amazon Prime Video app for TVs, connected devices including Fire TV, mobile devices and online.

Members can also download the series to mobile devices for offline viewing at no additional cost to their membership.

The series will be a global release available on PrimeVideo.com for members in more than 200 countries and territories.
