Actress and activist Rose McGowan will be featured in a docuseries greenlit by E! Entertainment.

The five-episode Citizen Rose, produced by Bunim/Murray Productions, will follow McGowan as she readies her memoir Brave for release.

“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,” said McGowan, a prominent figure in the #MeToo campaign and one of the first individuals to publicly accuse film producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault. “As I ready my book, Brave, I realized I wanted to show how we can heal through art even when being hounded by evil.”

The series will begin with a two-hour special, airing Jan. 30 at 8 p.m. ET/PT, followed by four episodes airing in the spring of 2018.

“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,” added Amy Introcaso-Davis, EVP, development and production with 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, Andrea Metz and McGowan serving as executive producers.
