TNT Greenlights New Docu-Series Who Run the World? (working title), From Executive Producers Sarah Jessica Parker, Morgan Spurlock & Refinery29

Series to Take on Women's Issues

Turner's TNT has greenlit Who Run the World? (working title), a new documentary series executive-produced by Emmy(R) winner Sarah Jessica Parker (Sex and the City, Divorce), Oscar(R) nominee Morgan Spurlock (Super Size Me, The Greatest Movie Ever Sold) and Refinery29. The new docu-series will focus on the issues that women face in today's world. Who Run the World? is produced by Spurlock's Warrior Poets and Parker's Pretty Matches Productions, in partnership with Refinery29 and in association with Turner's Studio T.

Who Run the World? is part of TNT's ongoing shift to more premium scripted dramas and high-profile documentary programming. Slated to premiere later this year, the series will unpack the most divisive and complicated issues facing women today, from the policing of their bodies and judgments of their family planning choices, to the micro-aggressions they face in the media, the workplace and everyday life. Exploring the complexities, advances and persistent inequalities that encapsulate how far women have come and how far society still has to go, it will ask if - and how - we can ever live in a truly equal world.

"It is important to me to explore the gendered experience, including the successes as well as the challenges," said Parker. "As we continue the fight for equality in pay, access to healthcare, childcare and more, I hope we can give a voice to the unheard and invite every human to be a part of the conversation. I am thrilled to be partnered with Warrior Poets, Refinery 29 and TNT on this timely and important project."

"There's never been a better time for this series than right now, and I couldn't have asked for better partners to make it happen," said Spurlock. "I'm so excited to tell these stories with Pretty Matches & Refinery29 and to share them with the world on TNT."

"Sarah Jessica and Morgan are great storytellers who know how to be both informative and enormously entertaining," said Sarah Aubrey, executive vice president of original programming for TNT. "Who Run the World? provides us with the opportunity to work with our producing partners at Refinery29 on a project that will resonate with their powerful, young female audience."

"We are so thrilled to be collaborating with Morgan and his amazing team again, as well as the iconic Sarah Jessica Parker on our first foray into television," said Amy Emmerich, Chief Content Officer of Refinery29. "This series represents our enduring commitment to put women first through relatable and culturally responsive content. Turner and TNT have been invaluable partners to us, and we're inspired by their active efforts to change the way women are seen on-screen."
