Woody Allen’s first televised interview in three decades is airing on Paramount Plus and is expected to cover the pedophilia allegations adopted by his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow.
The interview was conducted by CBS Sunday Morning reporter Lee Cowan in July 2020, but seemingly never aired and will be available as part of a larger package on Paramount Plus on Sunday.
The special was recorded for the release of Allen v. Farrow earlier this year, in which his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow speaks on camera about her alleged sexual abuse and is unlikely to cover HBO’s four-part docuseries.

The package also includes CBS This Morning’s comprehensive 2018 interview of Dylan Farrow by Gayle King, in which she said she told her mother Mia Farrow that Allen had abused her.
“She describes her allegations that she was abused by Allen in 1992 and denies that she was coached,” read a press release.
Allen, 85, has maintained his innocence and has never been charged with a crime. He did not participate in the Allen v. Farrow docuseries.
The Oscar-winning actor and director detailed his relationship with Mia Farrow and their adopted daughters Soon-Yi Previn and Dylan in a third of his latest memoir, and it is unlikely that Allen had strayed from his previous views on his relationship with them.
In another new part of the special, Erin Moriarty explored how public opinion and treatment of controversial artists would have “acted in a morally questionable way.”

The interview, which took place during an active news cycle last summer, is now being presented given the renewed interest in the controversy surrounding the filmmaker.
The statement continues, “The Paramount Plus exclusive provides the opportunity to explore Allen, his career, and the allegations in context and with the depth that this story requires.”
