In the latest account of Bill Cosby accusers, NBC’s “Dateline” will air an interview with 27 women who say they were sexually assaulted.
The sit-down with national correspondent Kate Snow is being depicted as the first group chat with dozens of alleged victims.
The special, set to air at 9 p.m. ET Friday, features Beverly Johnson, Cindra Ladd and others who have come forward.
“Snow also sat down with a small group of women known as ‘Jane Does’ who came forward in 2005 and agreed to talk about their experiences being sexually assaulted by Cosby but did not get the chance,” said the Hollywood Reporter. “Snow will also talk to lawyer Gloria Allred, who represents many of Cosby’s accusers.”
“This is the safest, most accepted group of women that we can talk to,” Lise-Lotte Lublin is quoted as saying. “There’s nothing greater than that, and more healing, than to just walk up to them and be accepted immediately. And for me, it’s powerful and it’s beautiful, and I’m so glad that I have it.”
Ladd adds: “I think for me, if I feel like I can be of service to another generation — by standing up and showing how important it is for everyone to stand up and tell the truth, and that it’s ok, and look what we’ve created here.”
Before “The Cosby Accusers Speak” episode on “Dateline” an A&E special showed more than a dozen women recalling their Cosby incidents in individual interviews. A New York magazine cover story pictured 35 Cosby accusers together.
