Lights, camera, action: new TV pilot shines spotlight on UN women

8 January 2019

The UN has played a major role in many lives around the world, from helping elections pass of peacefully to averting famine and deadly conflict, often working behind the scenes.

Award-winning producer James Manos, Jr. was so taken by the sacrifices some staff make in service to the UN and the greater-good, he’s written a pilot for a new television series focused on women staffers and the sacrifices they make to ensure the Organization’s goals are met.

Marking World TV Day, Mr. Manos and top screen actress, Serinda Swan, spoke to UN News’s Liz Scaffidi, for this latest edition of our Lid Is On podcast series.
