Featured Session: Examining The Way Down: God, Greed, and the Cult of Gwen Shamblin

Mar 12, 2022

4:00pm – 5:00pm CT

Investigative writer Nile Cappello, founder and CEO of Campfire Studios Ross Dinerstein, New York Times #1 bestselling author and TV personality Chrissy Teigen and Primetime Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Marina Zenovich discuss their investigation of the Remnant Fellowship Church, sharing a special first look at part two of their hit HBO Max docuseries The Way Down: God, Greed, and the Cult of Gwen Shamblin. This conversation will explore the years of research, interviews, and filmmaking that resulted in the most-watched docuseries on HBO Max at the time of part one’s release, and how the filmmakers pivoted when tragedy occurred just as they were putting the finishing touches on the project.
