The Discovery+ docuseries "House of Hammer" is out to prove that the apple doesn't fall from the troubled tree.

As reported by IndieWire, the doc will reveal a sordid history of money, power and deceit behind Armie Hammer's family empire and also explore the allegations of cannibalism and sexual assault that brought the actor's career down in flames.

"The accusations of rape and abuse brought against Armie Hammer in the last few years are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the Hammer family," says Jason Sarlanis, Discovery+ president of crime and investigative content. "With 'House of Hammer,' we witness truly disturbing details and sinister secrets that money and power couldn't hide forever."

Hammer is believed to be hiding out in the Cayman Islands and working as a realtor while the controversies surrounding his behavior cools off.

Two of Hammer's accusers, Courtney Vucekovich and Julia Morrison, and his aunt aunt Casey Hammer are featured in the docuseries and speak about surviving abuse at the hands of men in the Hammer family. The series will include archival footage, family photos and text messages and voice messages from Hammer that he shared with accusers.

"This documentary provides an important platform for the incredibly courageous women who came forward to share their stories," adds Sarlanis. "We hope their courage inspires others to continue meaningful conversations around abuse in our society."

Becoming a "dark controller, abuser," doesn't happen overnight the trailer teases. "This behavior is deep-rooted."
