According to the network, the series will follow McGowan as she prepares to release her memoir Brave, “all while going up against the Hollywood machine and those who try to silence her activism.”
“You are formally invited into my mind and world. I am thrilled to partner with E! to amplify my message of bravery, art, joy, and survival,” she said in a statement on Tuesday. “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.”
“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, executive vice president 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.”
McGowan was among the first women to come forward to accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct and has continued to be an outspoken voice as more women are emboldened to open up about their own history with sexual assault and harassment.
The first episode Citizen Rose will premiere on Jan. 30 at 8 p.m. on the E! network. Four more installments will follow in the spring.
