Episode 2: Carte Blanche
Who is Peter Nygard? The son of Finnish immigrants to Canada, he rose to become boss of an eponymous fashion label that once boasted hundreds of stores around the world. Nygard’s success gave him the means to move to the Bahamas and build a fantastical resort estate, which he also named after himself. But it was Nygard’s limitless ambitions for this property that would eventually see him forced out of the country… setting the stage for the wave of allegations to come.

Episode 1: The Jane Does
The world would not be talking about ‘Peter Nygard, the predator’ if it weren’t for a group of ten mostly Bahamian girls and young women who accused the fashion mogul of raping them. Two original ‘Jane Does’ tell their stories. They say, in their early teens, they were lured with false promises to Nygard’s palatial estate in the Bahamas, and attacked. We also learn about the so-called “pamper parties”: events thrown by Nygard made to sound luxurious and fun ... but whose purpose was far more sinister.
