A St. Louis man who was featured in the documentary series The Vow is now suing HBO as well as the series’ producers and directors.

Marc Elliot filed the lawsuit Tuesday in St. Louis City Circuit Court seeking more than $75,000 in damages, claiming that the filmmakers used a recording of a phone call he made without his consent.

Over the course of two seasons, The Vow told the story of the NXIVM cult, its leader Keith Raniere and his numerous victims. Key members of the group included Smallville actress Allison Mack and Seagrams beverage heiress Clare Bronfman. In 2019, Raniere was found guilty of racketeering, sex trafficking and other charges. He is currently serving a 120-year prison sentence. The NXIVM saga received significant media attention, including several books, an E! True Hollywood Story, a Law and Order “ripped from the headlines” episode and a Starz docu-series and in addition to the HBO one.

Elliot features heavily in the third episode of The Vow‘s second season, which focuses on NXIVM’s purported treatment of Tourette’s syndrome. Elliot claims NXIVM’s talk therapy and “self-help courses” helped him overcome the condition.
