Seduced: Inside the NXIVM Cult explores NXIVM, a self-help group serving as a front for a sex cult. Founder Keith Raniere was arrested and charged with sex trafficking and other crimes in 2018.

The series centers on India Oxenberg, the daughter of Dynasty actress Catherine Oxenberg, one of more than 17,000 people who enrolled in NXIVM's "Executive Success Programs." Within NXIVM was DOS, a secret master-slave society in which women were sex-trafficked.

The show follows Oxenberg's journey, from seduction, indoctrination, enslavement, escape and role as "co-conspirator" in assisting the U.S. government with taking down Raniere and his criminal enterprise.

Oxenberg discussed her experience during Tuesday's episode of Good Morning America.

"What I thought I was learning was self-help and personal growth. What I was learning was the opposite. It was inhumane," she said of the cult.
