Jennifer Lawrence and Catt Sadler are reportedly working on a TV docuseries about the #MeToo movement. 

Jennifer Lawrence may have announced a week ago that she was taking a year out to focus on activism, but she’s now accidentally revealed that she’s working on a docuseries for the small screen.

While promoting her new film, Red Sparrow, Lawrence let slip about her new project during an interview.

“I would like to direct one day. I think it’s important to start getting behind the camera, producing, so I can have more control over who gets hired and make sure I can be a part of it, and make sure there’s diversity on all our films,” Lawrence told Audrey Graham, co-founder of women’s co-working space The Wing in New York City.

“I’m going to be EPing a show with Catt Sadler, actually, which I wasn’t supposed to announce, but I am.”

Details about the series are scarce, but it’s reportedly being directed by documentary filmmaker Stephanie Soechtig, and will focus on issues facing women today like the gender pay gap and the #MeToo movement.

Sadler, who left E! News after discovering her male co-presenter was earning nearly double her salary for essentially doing the same job, was publicly supported by Lawrence. As a result, a great friendship has formed between the two in recent months. 

“Jennifer Lawrence has become a friend of mine — really, a hero of mine,” Sadler shared. “Long before my own experiences, her voice has been an empowering one and one I’ve always admired. To have her in my corner is hard to put into words, to be honest.”

We can’t wait to see what the pair make together.
