“An Unbelievable Story of Rape” Made Into a Netflix Series

T. Christian Miller and Ken Armstrong’s award-winning investigation with ProPublica and the Marshall Project, “An Unbelievable Story of Rape,” has been made into a Netflix series, “Unbelievable.” The investigation detailed the ordeal of a young woman who was coerced by authorities into recanting a claim that she had been raped.

FIJ provided Miller and Armstrong with a grant when they wrote a book on the same investigation, “A False Report: A True Story of Rape in America.” In their acknowledgments, the reporters thanked FIJ for its support: “The Fund for Investigative Journalism–which, in its first year, helped pay for Seymour Hersh’s work exposing the My Lai massacre–kindly provided us with a grant to defray our research costs for this book. So many journalists owe the FIJ a debt of gratitude. Count us among them.”
