Not So Pretty (4×30′) is currently in production and aims to bring awareness to the lurking dangers in the products we use every day without question for make-up, skin care, nails and hair.

Investigative filmmaker duo Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering (On The Record, The Hunting Ground, The Invisible War) will front the docuseries, which comes from their prodco Jane Doe Films and Entertainment One (eOne).

Produced by eOne, the documentary is helmed and executive produced by Dick and Ziering. Tara Long of eOne will also executive produce.

“Not So Pretty is a landmark exposé that will both captivate and educate viewers,” said Jennifer O’Connell, executive VP, original non-fiction and kids programming at HBO Max.

“Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering are masters of investigative storytelling and primed to reveal the unknown threats that affect us all. This series gives us the opportunity to spark change and arm consumers with the knowledge needed to make smarter personal care choices. We are pleased to continue our relationship with them after the acclaimed release of On The Record.”
