A&E NETWORK DEBUTS NEW ORIGINAL DOCUSERIES "8 MINUTES" THURSDAY, APRIL 2 AT 10:00 PM ET/PT

FOLLOW A VETERAN COP TURNED PASTOR AND HIS TEAM OF ADVOCATES AS THEY RISK THEIR LIVES TO HELP VICTIMS OF SEX TRAFFICING ESCAPE TO SAFETY

NEW YORK, NY - March 13, 2015 - A&E Network's new original series "8 Minutes" follows Pastor Kevin Brown and his Passage To Freedom team as they help sex workers and victims of sex trafficking leave their dangerous situations behind to start over. With over 20 years of law enforcement experience, Brown has determined that eight minutes is the maximum amount of time to safely convince these women to leave with his team - any longer puts everyone's lives at risk. This high-stakes series takes an unflinching look at a very dangerous world. "8 Minutes" premieres Thursday, April 2 at 10PM ET/PT on A&E.

In Houston, Texas, the epicenter of human trafficking in the United States, Brown and his team of victim's advocates and other volunteers, embark on a mission to help some of the thousands of young women forced into prostitution each year in America.

With the help of strategically placed hidden cameras, the team undertakes harrowing undercover missions to offer help to women they believe may be in danger. In a non-descript hotel room, Brown poses as a client and once he established his credentials, he then brings in a victim's advocate - a woman who has successfully escaped being trafficked herself. Throughout the season, we meet over forty women; ranging from one who saw her twin sister killed in front of her to another woman sold at the age of 10 by a family friend. The stakes are high and there isn't much time to decide if they want to take the offer of help or return to their life on the streets.

"8 Minutes" is produced for A&E Network by Relativity Television. Executive producers for Relativity Television are Tom Forman, Brad Bishop, Paul Harrison and Bryan Valderrama. Executive producers for A&E Network are Drew Tappon and Sean Gottlieb.
