Miriam Weeks is an 18-year-old college student attending Duke University. She is also Belle Knox, America’s top new adult-film actress, using her income as an adult entertainer to pay her tuition.
During her freshman year, scandal broke out across national headlines about her career and instead of hiding from it, she embraced it. By creating the alter-ego Belle, Miriam believes she can separate her two realities: a promising college student at a top ranked university and a young woman working in the explicit industry of adult entertainment.
The 5-part documentary series Becoming Belle Knox premieres September 16 on TheScene.com.
Becoming Belle Knox is part of Conde Nast Entertainment (CNE)’s ongoing docu-series “The Scene Inside,” which purports to offer an in-depth look at the stories and people that shape contemporary cultural conversation. “’The Scene Inside’ will provide audiences access to fascinating places, untold stories and captivating characters,” a release stated.
“After our success with the Emmy-nominated series, ‘Casualties of the Gridiron’ and the Television Academy Honoree, ‘Screw You Cancer,’ it became clear that “The Scene Inside” would be an opportunity to feature real people and their stories,” said Michael Klein, executive vice president of programming and content strategy. “Giving audiences a provocative view of controversial and diverse topics will build on the success of our previous documentary series.”
