Oprah Winfrey was executive producer on an upcoming documentary centering around sexual assault in the music industry that was due to go out on Apple's streaming service Apple TV+.




Winfrey announced on Friday she was walking away from the project and Apple TV+ would no longer distribute the film due to creative differences with the filmmakers Amy Zierig and Kirby Dick.




Winfrey said Zierig and Dick were rushing the film to premiere it at the Sundance Film Festival, which takes place at the end of this month.

Oprah Winfrey, one of the most high-profile stars Apple managed to get on its roster when it launched Apple TV+, is walking away from a Time's Up documentary that was supposed to go out on the streaming service, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The documentary centers on sexual assault allegations that were levelled against record producer Russell Simons by former music executive Drew Dixon. Dixon accused Simons of raping her in 1995 in a 2017 interview with the New York Times.
Winfrey was an executive producer on the documentary, and the creative force behind it is filmmakers Amy Zierig and Kirby Dick, who made the 2015 documentary "The Hunting Ground" about sexual assault on college campuses, and the "The Invisible War" 2012, which focused on sexual assault in the US military.
