Disney’s ABC News Studios has announced that its most recent documentary series, “Pretty Baby: Brooke Shields”, is the most-watched program out of all ABC News launches to debut on Hulu. The documentary premiered earlier this month on Hulu in the U.S., Star+ in Latin America and Disney+ internationally, following its world premiere to a sold-out crowd and standing ovation at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival.

Kim Godwin, ABC News president, said in a statement:

“We’re thrilled with the overwhelmingly positive response to this riveting story that needed to be told and is striking a chord and resonating with audiences around the world. I want to thank Brooke Shields for her courage and George Stephanopoulos, Ali Wentworth and the incredible team who worked tirelessly on this project, which is a true testament to the power of ABC News’ best-in-class storytelling,”

The two-part documentary is a galvanizing look at actor, model and icon Brooke Shields as she transforms from a sexualized young girl to a woman discovering her power. Holding a mirror up to a society that objectifies women and girls, her story shows the perils and triumphs of gaining agency in a hostile world.

Reena Mehta, ABC News senior vice president of Streaming and Digital Content, added:

“At ABC News Studios, we develop projects that delve into rich archives and celebrate unique stories and iconic figures like Brooke Shields. We are always looking to partner with innovative storytellers, such as the fantastic team that created ‘Pretty Baby,’”

“Pretty Baby: Brooke Shields” is produced by Matador Content and BedBy8 for ABC News Studios, which is led by vice president Mike Kelley. Christine O’Malley and Matador Content’s Jack Turner serve as producers. Matador Content’s Jay Peterson and Todd Lubin and Bedby8’s Ali Wentworth, George Stephanopoulos and Alyssa Mastromonaco are executive producers. Jacqueline Glover and Jennifer Joseph serve as executive producers for ABC News Studios. Lana Wilson is the director and executive producer.

You’ll find “Pretty Baby: Brooke Shields” available to stream now on Hulu in the United States, Star+ in Latin America and Disney+ around the world.
