Published Jan 02, 2018Rose McGowan was already set to bring her message to the masses with a new memoir this month, but the actor-turned-activist will also explore her courageous address of sexual assault and abuse in Hollywood with a new documentary series.
McGowan will produce and star in a five-part documentary series for E! titled Citizen Rose.
"You are formally invited into my mind and world," said McGowan in a statement. "I am thrilled to partner with E! to amplify my message of bravery, art, joy and survival. As I ready my book, Brave, I realized I wanted to show how we can heal through art even when being hounded by evil. I want to have a conversation with everyone, and most especially, you about looking at things differently and seeing beauty everywhere. E!'s tremendous reach and impressive platform allow me to globally communicate the importance of living a brave life."
E! executive vice-president of development and production Amy Introcaso-Davis added, "Rose McGowan's courage in addressing sexual abuse and harassment in Hollywood ignited a conversation and inspired other women to speak out against their abusers. We look forward to taking viewers inside this talented, dynamic woman's world as the first allegations unfold and she becomes a leading voice in a critical cultural change."
The series will open with a two-hour feature-length doc on January 30, followed by four additional episodes set to air in the spring.
