E! has greenlit the limited documentary series Citizen Rose, featuring artist and activist Rose McGowan, from Bunim/Murray Productions.
The five-part series will premiere as a two-hour documentary special on January 30 at 8 p.m., followed by four episodes airing in spring 2018. The project follows McGowan as she readies her memoir/manifesto, Brave, for release. Previously best known for her role in the TV series Charmed, McGowan exposed the sexual harassment and abuse she experienced in Hollywood.
“You are formally invited into my mind and world,” said McGowan. “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.”
“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,” said Amy Introcaso-Davis, the executive VP of development and production at E! “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.”
Citizen Rose is produced by Bunim/Murray Productions with Jonathan Murray, Gil Goldschein, Farnaz Farjam Chazan and Andrea Metz serving as executive producers. McGowan is also an executive producer on the project.
