A recent premiere screening of the series at NeueHouse Madison Square in Manhattan was shut down after the venue received anonymous calls claiming an attendee had a gun. Per a Variety report at the time, the calls were placed approximately 15 minutes into the screening, at which point local authorities advised an evacuation.
"Despite non-credible threats called in during tonight's screening, we followed appropriate safety protocols in collaboration with the NYPD and elected to postpone the event," a NeueHouse rep said following the postponed screening and panel discussion. "We stand by the creative women bringing these heroic stories to light."
As for the docuseries, all signs point to it being an emotionally raw exploration of the allegations surrounding Kelly. "Robert, you don’t get to tell my story," Andrea told Sister Circle back in October, speaking to the camera and her ex-husband. "You don’t get to tell people that we got divorced because I had a problem with being a stay-at-home mom. We got divorced because I was no longer going to sit and be violated. What he did to me was criminal.
