E! has slotted a May airdate for Rose McGowan’s limited series Citizen Rose. The three-part special begins at 10 PM Thursday, May 17, and picks up where January’s two-hour documentary left off, with McGowan set to launch her memoir/manifesto, Brave.
Per E!, the limited series deals with McGowan’s “emotional toll of having to constantly revisit her painful past, all the while launching a book that is one of her proudest achievements. Rose takes her social movement, #rosearmy, global to Berlin, Paris and Rome with friends like fellow survivor, Asia Argento. With the pressure on her at an all-time high, and a confrontation during a book signing, Rose reaches her breaking point and comes face-to-face with a lifetime’s worth of trauma that she’s never dealt with. With Hollywood behind her, Rose journeys to the beautiful place where she grew up as part of the Children of God cult and must find the courage to face the darkness of her past in order to smile brightly at her future.”
McGowan got into a verbal confrontation with an attendee during a Barnes & Noble event for the book in February, then canceled her upcoming appearances after alleging she had been “verbally assaulted” at the event.
Citizen Rose is produced by Bunim/Murray Productions with Jonathan Murray, Gil Goldschein, Farnaz Farjam Chazan and Andrea Metz serving as executive producers. McGowan also serves as Executive Producer.
