Documentarians Amy Ziering and Kirby Dick's untitled film will follow a former music exec possibly going public after an alleged assault by a notable industry figure.

Apple has nabbed an untitled documentary produced and directed by Oscar-nominated filmmakers Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering and presented by Oprah Winfrey about alleged sexual misconduct in the music industry.

Set to debut next year, Dick and Ziering's latest doc will follow a former music executive who grapples with whether to go public with her story of assault and abuse by a notable figure in the music industry.

The filmmaking duo were nominated for an Oscar and won two news and documentary Emmys and a Peabody for The Invisible War, their documentary about rape within the ranks of the U.S. military, and their 2015 film The Hunting Ground, an exposé of sexual assault on college campuses, was Emmy-nominated and won a Producers Guild of America Award.

Dick and Ziering's last film, The Bleeding Edge, streamed on Netflix. The next effort is billed as an examination of race, gender and class and the toll assaults take on their victims and society at large.

The as-yet untitled Dick and Ziering doc is being produced by their production venture, Jane Doe Films, with Winfrey, Terry Wood, Dan Cogan, Regina K. Scully, Ian Darling and Abigail Disney serving as executive producers. The creative team includes producers Jamie Rogers and Amy Herdy.
