Exclusive: Get A Sneak Peek Of Peacock's New Docuseries 'Paul T. Goldman'
In this sneak peek of Peacock's docuseries "Paul T. Goldman," the subject of the documentary explains how he began investigating his estranged wife.
When Paul T. Goldman married a woman he met online, he never could’ve guessed that their story would be the subject of a documentary.
Goldman, a single father, had hoped that they’d enjoy a long, happy marriage together — the complete opposite of what actually happened. In reality, mere months into their marriage, he made the shocking discovery that his wife, Audrey, wasn’t the person she made herself out to be. He alleged in his 2009 book, "Duplicity: A True Story of Crime and Deceit," that Audrey was a scam artist.
In the upcoming Peacock series “Paul T. Goldman,” the real-life Goldman tells the story of his investigation into his wife’s purported “secret double life” through a series of dramatic recreations and interviews. Aiding him on this journey is “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm” director Jason Woliner and a myriad of stars, including Frank Grillo and Rosanna Arquette.
Goldman approached Woliner on Twitter more than a decade ago, seeking the director’s help in bringing to life this stranger-than-fiction tale. As Woliner said in a press release, “The story is equal parts fascinating, hilarious, shocking, and often weirdly moving. It has endless bizarre turns, and Paul himself is the most captivating person I’ve ever encountered.”
The show has a style all its own, weaving together behind-the-scenes footage with recreations starring Goldman, who wrote the script himself. The end result, Woliner said, is “the most conceptually ambitious and personal project I’ve ever worked on.”
In the sneak peek above, Goldman wades deeper into his own investigation of Audrey, using cell phone records subpoenaed by his lawyer during their divorce proceedings.
“At times Paul comes across as sympathetic and at other times he’s discomfiting," Woliner continued. "And it’s going to be really exciting to watch the social media response and conversation this creates as the audience debates where they stand on him and his story.”
You can judge Goldman’s story for yourself when the first episodes of “Paul T. Goldman” premiere Jan. 1 on Peacock.
