Gretchen Carlson is coming back to television

Gretchen Carlson, TV Journalist and Female Empowerment Advocate on 'Crossing Lines' at The 2017 Women In The World Summit in New York City on 4/6/2017.

Gretchen Carlson, the former Fox News anchor who helped expose the sexual misconduct of longtime network chief Roger Ailes, is busy wrapping up her episode of an upcoming documentary series. And during a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, she hinted that viewers may be seeing more of her on television.

“There will be more news to come,” she told the publication at the First Amendment Awards in Washington, D.C., last Thursday. “Stay tuned for other announcements in TV.”

Carlson would not provide further details about the upcoming gig.  She is currently working as an executive producer and correspondent of the Epix series America Divided. Her episode will follow her efforts to pass a bill titled the Ending Forced Arbitration of Sexual Harassment Act of 2017, which seeks to abolish contract clauses that forces employees to forfeit their right to a court hearing. As an employee of Fox News, Carlson was bound by an arbitration clause, but successfully worked around it by suing Roger Ailes and not the company.

She told The Hollywood Reporter that she is “incredibly optimistic” the bill will pass. And she appears to be undaunted by her return to the small screen. “”Listen, after everything I’ve been through, doing TV is easy,” she said.

At the First Amendment Awards, Carlson was honored for her perseverance in the face of adversity and dedication to bringing the truth to light,” according to the The Hill. Bringing the truth to light was a topic she discussed in depth last year at the Women in the World New York Summit. She also laid out exactly what women should — and should not do — the they find themselves sexually harassed or assaulted at work. Watch the full interview with Carlson below.
