Priyanka Chopra-Jonas is seeking the advice of fellow successful women as she embarks on a new season of life.
To celebrate International Women’s Day on Friday, YouTube announced a slate of female-focused programming, which includes Chopra-Jonas’ upcoming special, If I Could Tell You Just One Thing.
If I Could Tell You Just One Thing, based on the best-selling book of the same name by author Richard Reed, follows the newlywed actress — she tied the knot with husband Nick Jonas at the end of 2018 — on her journey to meet and interview the successful trio. Each woman shares personal stories and gives Chopra-Jonas an actionable piece of advice.
It is slated to premiere March 27 on Chopra-Jonas’ YouTube channel.
The online video platform also announced the new new 20-minute short film, Brave Girl Rising, which was written and performed by refugee women and made in collaboration with the International Rescue Committee in one of the largest refugee camps in the world. It will benefit Girl Rising, the non-profit behind the campaign for girls’ education and empowerment.
Poet laureate Warsan Shire wrote the screenplay, and Westworld‘s Tessa Thompson and Selma‘s David Oyelowo voiced the story. The film anchors a social-action campaign for refugee girls’ education and empowerment; premiere marks the worldwide debut of the complete Girl Rising 10-part series, which features stories voiced by Meryl Streep and Cate Blanchett, among others.
Additionally, YouTube launched 10-episode series Sherwood, an animated show set in the dystopian future of 2270 that casts Robin Hood as a girl who uses code to right the wrongs of the world in the 23rd century. Available now on on YouTube Premium, the series features the voices of numerous A-list stars, including Anya Chalotra, Tyler Posey and Joseph Fiennes.
“YouTube Originals is dedicated to delivering diverse female focused stories to our global audience,” said Susanne Daniels, global head of original content for YouTube, in a statement. “This International Women’s Day, we are proudly partnering with amazing women — in front and behind the camera — for truly empowering and inspirational stories.”
If I Could Tell You Just One Thing will premiere exclusively on Priyanka Chopra-Jonas’ YouTube Channel on March 27.
