Rose McGowan to Star in New 'Citizen Rose' Docuseries
By Desiree Murphy
Rose McGowan has something extra special for the #RoseArmy in 2018.
The 44-year-old actress and activist will star and serve as executive producer in a new five-part documentary, titled CITIZEN ROSE, on E! this year, the network revealed on Tuesday.
A two-hour documentary special will air Tuesday, Jan. 30 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on E!, the same day McGowan's memoir, BRAVE, is expected for release from HarperCollins. Four episodes will follow in the spring.
"You are formally invited into my mind and world," McGowan said of the series 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."
The news comes following McGowan's inclusion in Time magazine's "Person of the Year," which honored a group of "silence breakers" for their courage in speaking out against sexual misconduct.
"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," Amy Introcaso-Davis, Executive Vice President, Development and Production, E!, said in a statement. "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."
