“Pretty Baby: Brooke Shields”, take a galvanizing look at actor, model, and icon Brooke Shields as she transforms from a sexualized young girl to a woman discovering her power. The documentary holds up a mirror to society that objectifies women and girls. Her story shows the perils and triumphs of gaining agency in a hostile world.

Wilson creates space for the adult Shields to share her intelligence, vulnerability, and humanity while reflecting on her career and life, including her complex relationship with her mother, Teri, her marriage to Andre Agassi, and her own struggles with motherhood. Honest and incisive, Pretty Baby: Brooke Shields critiques a toxic culture and power structure that perpetuates misogyny and is complicit in the sexualization and objectification of young girls. But, above all, it tells the moving story of Brooke Shields discovering and embracing her own identity and agency.
The documentary has been directed by Lana Wilson, known for her Taylor Swift doc “Miss Americana,” the series is also the first project from George Stephanopoulos and Ali Wentworth’s new production company BedBy8.
