Rose McGowan, who has become a galvanizing force in the campaign against sexual harassment in Hollywood, will be the focus of an upcoming documentary series on the E! cable network.

Titled Citizen Rose, the five-part series will follow Rose as she prepares for the release of her memoir, Brave, according to a statement from the network. The show will premiere on January 30, coinciding with the publication of McGowan’s new book, reports the HuffPost. Additional episodes will air in the spring.

In October, McGowan was among the first women to publicly accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault; she had previously said that she was raped by a prominent movie executive, leading some to speculate that Weinstein was her attacker. McGowan has recently become a vocal proponent of the #MeToo movement. Weinstein has denied the allegation by McGowan.

“You are formally invited into my mind and world. I am thrilled to partner with E! to amplify my message of bravery, art, joy and survival,” McGowan said in the statement. “I wanted to show how we can heal through art even when being hounded by evil. I want to have a conversation with everyone, and most especially, you, about looking at things differently and seeing beauty everywhere.” In a post on Instagram, McGowan suggested that the idea for Citizen Rose has been in the works for about three years.
