Disney has released a brand new documentary series, “Pretty Baby: Brooke Shields”, on Disney+ around the world, including in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Ireland and the United Kingdom. The documentary is also available on Hulu in the United States.

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. “Pretty Baby: Brooke Shields” is produced by Matador Content and BedBy8 for ABC News Studios. The film marks the debut project from BedBy8, the newly formed production company by Ali Wentworth, George Stephanopoulos and partner Alyssa Mastromonaco.

The film follows Shields through her extraordinary childhood and complex relationship with her mother and manager, Teri Shields. Shields’ professional career began at only 11 months old, working as a child model before starring in Louis Malle’s controversial film “Pretty Baby” at the age of 12. She became the face of the eighties with Calvin Klein jeans ads, and leading roles in “The Blue Lagoon” and “Endless Love,” navigating the unrelenting scrutiny of the press and a culture that wanted to commodify her. After defying stereotypes by going to college, Shields re-enters the entertainment industry as an adult, but it isn’t until she begins to trust herself and her instincts that she’s able to find her identity and voice.

“Pretty Baby: Brooke Shields” is produced by Matador Content and BedBy8 for ABC News Studios. Christine O’Malley and 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.
