America Ferrera isn’t Done yet…
PBS has set an October premiere date for Not Done: Women Remaking America, Sara Wolitzky’s feature-length documentary featuring the 36-year-old Golden Globe and Emmy-winning Nicaraguan American actress/producer.
The documentary, the latest project from Verizon Media’s Makers brand, chronicled the U.S. women’s movement. The film, from Verizon Media and McGee Media, expands upon the PBS documentary series Makers: Women Who Make America.
In addition to America Ferrera, those interviewed in the film include Natalie Portman, Shonda Rhimes and Gloria Steinem, as the film surveys the landscape of the women’s movement and includes archival and new interviews to connect past milestones to the current ones.
#MeToo founder Tarana Burke, Black Lives Matter Global Network co-founders Patrisse Cullors and Alicia Garza, CAA agent Maha Dakhil, Joey Soloway, Time’s Up CEO Tina Tchen and New York Times journalists Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey also appear.
The hour-long film is produced by Alexandra Moss and executive produced by Makers founder Dyllan McGee, and features a primarily female and non-binary crew. It was the first recipient of Verizon’s $5 million Future Fund, which was created to support new and emerging female talent across entertainment and technology, and marks Wolitzky’s feature directorial debut.
“I have been awed making this film and looking back at how much has happened in the women’s movement since the last election,” McGee said. “Especially as we now mourn the passing of a giant like Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, I am heartened by the heroic women in this film who carry on her legacy.”
Not Done was originally announced in February during the sixth annual Makers Conference in Los Angeles and had been set for a June premiere tied to the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote, but the coronavirus shutdown delayed its debut.
Not Done will now debut on October 27 at 8 p.m.
