Producers, the Verizon Media brand revolving about girls, unveiled its newest PBS name Not Done, a documentary which develops on the pubcaster’s documentary show MAKERS: Girls Who Make America. The information came Tuesday during the sixth annual MAKERS Conference, currently underway at the InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown.
Not Done will broadcast June 30 at 8 PM on PBS timed into the 100th anniversary of this 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote. Sara Wolitzky led the hourlong doc, made by Alexandra Moss and executive produced by Producers founder Dyllan McGee.
The picture studies the landscape of their multifaceted women’s movement and includes archival and fresh interviews with activists, authors, actors, athletes, and politicians to bring these tales to life and join the dots between the past and the current period of transformation. Gloria Steinem, #MeToo founder Tarana Burke, Black Lives Issue Global Network co-founders Patrisse Cullors and Alicia Garza, CAA representative Maha Dakhil, America Ferrera, Natalie Portman, Shonda Rhimes, Jill Soloway, Time’s Up CEO Tina Tchen and NYT journalists Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey are one of those featured.

Not Done is the primary recipient of Verizon’s Future Fund, a $5 million commitment to encourage emerging and new feminine ability across technology and entertainment.
“We’re motivated by a new production of truth-speaking, sexually active girls which are changing standards and fighting an intersectional perspective,” said McGee. “We’re optimistic Not Done will induce others to join them into this reignited women’s motion and continue to move the needle toward equality, as MAKERS has performed since its beginning.”
