The three-part series, “House of Hammer,” investigates accusations against Hammer — which he has emphatically and repeatedly denied through lawyers — including messages that he allegedly sent to women about his cannibalistic fantasies and sexual fetishes, which his accusers say were abusive.
An explosive trailer, released on Wednesday by Discovery, includes two of Hammer’s alleged victims giving on-camera interviews and sharing screenshots of messages and audio of voice memos they claim to have received from the actor.
Hammer is also alleged to have said in a voice memo, which is played in the trailer, “My bet was going to involve showing up at your place and completely tying you up and incapacitating you and being able to do whatever I wanted to every single hole in your body until I was done with you.”
The doc was produced in tandem with Casey Hammer, who is Armie Hammer’s aunt and granddaughter of Armand Hammer, the businessman who made the family fortune in the oil business. Casey Hammer signed a deal prior to the project being shopped around town, before it ultimately landed at Discovery’s streaming service. She officially served as a consultant, alongside directors Elli Hakami and Julian P. Hobbs.
