The trailer for her docuseries premiered during the Golden Globes.
The first look premiered during the awards show Sunday, and in it, McGowan seems just as fiery and determined about putting a stop to Hollywood’s sexual intimidation culture as she does on Twitter.
“I wish I had more middle fingers,” she says with a smile in one excerpt.
The show will chronicle her experience as a champion for survivors of sexual violence. It kicks off with a two-hour documentary Jan. 30 and, after a brief hiatus, will return in the spring with a handful of shorter episodes.
McGowan made waves recently for criticizing Time’s Up, the newly-formed organization of over 300 women from different industries, focused on deconstructing the systems that have allowed sexual harassment to flourish in America’s workplaces. At the time, McGowan had caught wind that organizers were asking attendees at Sunday’s Globes to wear black in solidarity, and called the plan “hypocritical.”
“You’ll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no real change,” she wrote in a now-deleted tweet.
But the Time’s Up organizers did a lot of work to prove her wrong Sunday. Actresses brought women from other industries as their dates to the awards, steered red carpet interviews toward pay equity and sexual violence, and gave speech after speech calling out the need for a bottom-up rehaul on our country’s workplace culture.
Was it still a capitalist spectacle that ultimately made a lot of money for predominantly white, male executives? Yes. But it also marked a historic change for women determining what their own on-camera time would be about.
In her E! trailer, McGowan reminds us: “The true story is bigger than Hollywood.” It seems like her Time’s Up counterparts agree.
