A commercial has been running on Investigation Discovery, the network that will be airing the premiere of the film, “The Lost Women of Nxivm”.
I am the Coordinating Producer of that film and the film is about my investigation into the deaths of Pam Cafritz, Barbara Jeske and Gina Hutchinson – and the disappearance of Kristin Snyder.
In subsequent posts, leading up to the premiere on Sunday, I will try to give readers a little more insight into what is in the film. This is not merely to entice readers into viewing the film, but because we have an ongoing investigation into the lost women.
This is an authentic investigation and I would be remiss if I did not mention that I got tremendous support for doing just that – an authentic investigation by the network – by the producers, Ari Mark and Phil Lott of Ample Entertainment – and by Executive Producer, Pat McGee, who went with me around the nation to film interviews with people connected to my investigation.
ID has been airing a commercial on the film for at least a month, and readers tell me it is running frequently.
Here are the tag lines displayed in the commercial
A secret sex cult exposed

A word on the voices.
