From undercover investigations to hidden camera experiments, the show will give the audience new perspective in an effort to gain insight into relevant issues and social trends affecting women’s lives.
The series will be based in New York City and produced by Telepictures Productions in association with StrongChild Productions and Anderson will serve as an executive producer.
