Unscripted Series Exposes What Happens When Women Are Given Ultimate Power

This spring, FOX, the home of genre-twisting hits �Joe Millionaire,� �My Big Fat Obnoxious Fianc� and �Temptation Island,� will expose the battle of the sexes, turning traditional gender roles upside-down and giving women all the power on WHEN WOMEN RULE THE WORLD (working title).

What if it was �a woman�s world�? What if women made ALL the decisions? If men were their subjects? These questions and more will be explored when a group of strong, educated and independent women, tired of living in a man�s world and each with a personal axe to grind, rule over a group of unsuspecting men used to calling the shots on WHEN WOMEN RULE THE WORLD.

The unscripted series will reveal how women and men react in a world where women are in charge and men are subservient, and each gender�s ability to adapt to a new social order will be put to the test.

The participants will be brought to a remote, primitive location where the women will have the opportunity to �rule� as they build a newly formed society � one where there is no glass ceiling and no need to dress to impress. For the men, their worlds of power and prestige are turned inside-out and upside-down. And for these women, turnabout is fair play!

In order to win, the men must accede to the women�s every command, 24/7, while building a new world. Here, women command and men obey. Over the series� duration, the men will be eliminated by the women until one last man is standing.

How will the men react? How will the women treat the men? Can women effectively rule society? Will the men learn what life is like for some women in today�s world? Will this new society be a Utopia or a hell on earth? And in the end, who will be man enough to succeed in the new social order?

The premiere date, host and additional show details will be announced at a later date.

WHEN WOMEN RULE THE WORLD (working title) is a Rocket Science Laboratories production. Jean Michel-Michenaud, Chris Cowan and Charles Duncombe are executive producers.
