Why did Arianna Huffington’s husband invest $5 million in an internet startup whose sole purpose was introducing older men to younger boys? Why did David Geffen invest $500,000 in the same company? Why is Brian Peck, a convicted pedophile, a registered sex offender, accused of sexually abusing a Nickelodeon child star still allowed to work in Hollywood with child actors? Why did SAG-AFTRA threaten to sue the producer of An Open Secret after the documentary exposed a child predator high within the union’s ranks? We meet Anne Henry whose research served as the basis for An Open Secret a new documentary from Oscar nominated Director Amy Berg. An Open Secret reveals Hollwood’s long history of failing to protect child actors from sexual abuse. We are also joined by Gabe Hoffman who produced the documentary, and David Robb who covers labor for Deadline Hollywood.
