Exclusive: BBC Worldwide preps U.S. version of ‘The Week the Women Went’


BBC Worldwide Prods. has quietly begun casting in the U.S. for an adaptation of format “The Week the Women Went,” an unscripted docu series in which the entire female population of a town vanishes. (A preview of the original British version, which premiered in 2005, appears above.)

“Women” has a cast-contingent greenlight to go straight to series, with the casting more than a matter of simply filling a few roles. Producers are currently seeking a town where they will conduct a weeklong social experiment of what life without any females at all would be like, with all of the women who work and live there volunteering to make themselves scarce.
