Josh Duggar Documentary 'In The Works,' Will Detail Bombshell Trial & Family's Scandals And Secrets
A Josh Duggar documentary may be coming our way.
A new doc focusing on the embattled star's child pornography trial and his family's scandals is currently "in the works" at Amazon, it was reported.
The docuseries that has yet-to-be named is being produced by The Cinemart, Story Force, Chick Entertainment and Amazon Studios, according to Variety, who reported on Thursday, December 23, Amazon Studios has greenlit an investigation from the same filmmakers as their LuLaRich docuseries.
The show will reportedly break down the Institute in Basic Life Principles, a fundamentalist organization associated with the troubled reality star's family, who has been under public scrutiny ever since it was revealed in 2015 that Josh molested several underage girls, including two of his sisters.
The logline reportedly reads: "On the heels of Josh Duggar’s explosive criminal trial, the untitled project will expose shocking connections between some of reality television’s most famous large families and The Institute in Basic Life Principles, a controversial fundamentalist organization and homeschooling empire. In addition, prominent commentators, writers, and social media voices will explore the broader zeitgeist of reality television, social media, faith, fundamentalism, patriarchy, and power.”
The docuseries will reportedly premiere on Prime Video in late 2022 or in 2023.

Josh was found guilty on two counts of possessing and receiving child pornography on December 9, after he was arrested in April following a 2019 Homeland Security raid on his car dealership.
Though the Counting On alum's headline-making case put the spotlight on Josh and his family, this wasn't the first time the famous crew came under fire.
TLC canceled 19 Kids and Counting after Josh's molestation scandal — which was allowed to be used in his child pornography trial — was brought to light. As OK! reported, an unearthed 2006 police report revealed he had admitted to molesting five minor girls.
The father-of-seven was never charged for the alleged sexual abuse, but he apologized for his "wrongdoing," and two of his sisters, Jill Dillard and Jessa Seewald detailed their experience in a bombshell interview in 2015.
The family's spinoff, Counting On — which ran for 11 seasons — was also canceled after Josh's arrest earlier this year, with TLC announcing in a June statement it would "not be producing additional seasons of ‘Counting On,'" in order to "give the Duggar family the opportunity to address their situation privately."
