From Rachel Dretzin, Director & Executive Producer

"The women in our series managed to leave the FLDS with no real education or skills, no money, no support whatsoever. For their whole lives they had been valued solely as plural wives and as breeders of children. To leave meant saying goodbye to everything and everyone they loved to start over in a society they didn't understand. "Badass" doesn't begin to describe how fierce they are. I am proud to be connected to them and grateful to have had the opportunity to tell their story."

From Miura Kite, SVP of Global Television at Participant

"The women and men who shared their stories of life within the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints with Rachel Dretzin have shown incredible bravery, and we're honored to support Rachel's commitment to bringing these experiences to light. Participant is excited to be working once again with Netflix on this important series."
