Actress Jennifer Lawrence and former E! News anchor Catt Sadler are reportedly working on a documentary TV series inspired by the #MeToo movement and have had conversations with filmmaker Stephanie Soechtig (“Under the Gun,” “Fed Up”) about the project.
Lawrence, appearing at The Wing in New York, revealed she has partnered with Sadler on a series project. Asked to elaborate, she said: “I wasn’t supposed to announce that but I am.”
THR then tracked down sources which says the series is inspired by #MeToo, Time’s Up and gender wage gap conversations in Hollywood, and plans are for deep dive into issues facing women today. The plan is to fast track the docu-series once they secure a distributor or formally partner with a production company.
Lawrence has been an outspoken voice in the fight for equal pay in Hollywood and famously wrote about her own pay battles: “When the Sony hack happened and I found out how much less I was being paid than the lucky people with dicks, I didn’t get mad at Sony. I got mad at myself. I failed as a negotiator because I gave up early.”
