We’re getting a first look at the Stormy Daniels original documentary, Stormy. Peacock has released a teaser trailer (see above) and announced a March 18 premiere date for the project, directed and executive produced by Emmy-nominated Sarah Gibson (Orgasm Inc: The Story of OneTaste).
The official description: “Stormy delves into the life and times of Stormy Daniels, as she shares her story and account of events that have become part of American history … the film takes the audience behind the curtain as Stormy navigates being a mother, an artist, and an advocate working hard to reinvent herself, while still grappling with the bombshell that went off in her life five years earlier. From reporters to lawyers to politicians, many have attempted to define Stormy Daniels. Stormy tells the unvarnished truth about an unlikely American icon — this time, in her own words.”

Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, is a former adult film star, who The Wall Street Journal reported had an affair with Donald Trump in 2006. WSJ reported Trump paid her $130,000 in “hush money” in 2016 to keep quiet during his run for the presidency. Trump has consistently denied the affair. He was indicted by a New York grand jury and has pleaded not guilty to a 34-count indictment charging him with falsifying business records in connection with the payment, just days before the 2016 presidential election.
