History has traditionally been told by and about men. Although many city documentaries have been produced, none have focused exclusively on the roles played by women. This series will blaze a new trail. The Women of Philadelphia: A Documentary, will be the first series on the history of the city as seen through the perspectives, contributions and impacts of women.
The Women of Philadelphia: A Documentary, produced for broadcast and broadband with a robust educational component, will capture the true and compelling stories of generations of women who lived, worked, fought for change, raised their families, and shaped Philadelphia.
This series is especially relevant today, as women attain new heights on the leadership ladder and find new definitions of success. The series will celebrate today’s achievements and reveal the challenges of those who came before as well as the challenges we still face.

Urban Trinity: The Story of Catholic Philadelphia will capture true and compelling stories from three centuries of Catholic leadership, institutions, and parishioners. In many ways the story of Catholic Philadelphia, its ethnic groups, immigration trends, ethnic parishes, conflicts, tragedies, and achievements mirrors the story of this region. How Catholics defended their faith, often against enormous pressures, and assimilated into American life and culture, creating its own set of conflicts and dichotomies, is a dramatic and inspiring story. Urban Trinity will be produced for broadcast, theatrical, and broadband presentation and supported with a robust educational component. The series will be completed to coincide with the 2015 World Meeting of Families here in Philadelphia, and will air on WPVI-TV/6abc.
