Tell It Like It Is

13 x 30 minutes • Documentary Series • Produced in association with: W Network • Production year: 2004

TELL IT LIKE IT IS is an innovative 13-episode documentary series with a simple premise: real women tell their own personal stories - intimate, embarrassing, somber, thrilling directly to camera in their own voices. Two or three unrelated stories from different women are intercut, and through the editing, the women start to speak to each other, comment on each other’s stories and sometimes-surprising common threads start to weave together from their experiences.

TELL IT LIKE IT IS offers you a visually vibrant and compulsively engaging series that shows that everyone has a story that deserves to be told.
