U.S. net A&E Network has set an April premiere for the docuseries 8 Minutes, which follows a pastor setting out to help sex workers and victims of sex trafficking.
The previously announced series follows Houston, Texas-based pastor Kevin Brown and his “Passage to Freedom” team as they attempt to “rescue” sex workers from dangerous situations.
Brown – who, according to A&E, has more than 20 years of law enforcement experience – has determined that eight minutes is the maximum amount of time required to convince women to leave with his team without posing a risk to their safety.
The Relativity Television-produced series – which uses hidden cameras to film undercover missions undertaken by the team – profiles 40 women over the course of the season.
8 Minutes is to debut on April 2 at 10 p.m. EST/PST. Executive producers for Relativity Television are Tom Forman, Brad Bishop, Paul Harrison and Bryan Valderrama, while Drew Tappon and Sean Gottlieb are exec producing for A&E Network.
