The BBC already has a feature doc in the works about the disgraced mogul.

Just weeks after the BBC commissioned a special feature documentary on Harvey Weinstein, fellow British network Channel 4 has ordered another. 

The Hollywood Reporter understands that the unnamed doc, from Tigerlily Productions and for Channel 4's current affairs series Dispatches, will pay special attention to Weinstein's deep connections to the film industry in the U.K., where he is alleged to have attacked numerous women and is currently being investigated by the police. 

Several of Weinstein's alleged attacks took place in London's Savoy Hotel, while he is also accused of assaults during Miramax's early days in the English capital, dating back more than two decades. Zelda Perkins, his former British assistant at the company, has already broken a non-disclosure agreement, alleging that Weinstein sexually harassed her repeatedly.

The BBC's doc, announced in December, is being put together by Lightbox, founded by Oscar-winning producer Simon Chinn (Man on Wire, Searching for Sugar Man), and Emmy-winner Jonathan Chinn (LA 92). 

Air dates for both docs are yet to be announced.
