NEW YORK, NY – September 9, 2019 – Bravo takes a deep dive into gender bias with a bold social experiment in the new limited event series, “In A Man’s World” premiering Tuesday, October 1st at 10pm ET/PT. From Viola Davis and husband Julius Tennon’s JuVee Productions and Lucky 8, the eye-opening series follows four dynamic women who embark on the journey of a lifetime as they transform into men to experience life from the opposite side. With the help of Academy Award-winning Special Effects make-up team, Lou and Dave Elsey, and skilled voice and movement coaches, each woman develops her own alter ego and spends two days living in a man’s world. After their frustration at being disregarded because of their gender, the women are looking to flip the script and experience a day without bias from the very same people who held them back in the past.

From a professional pool player in a male-dominated sport, to an aspiring politician looking to understand her recent city council election loss, these women seek to be judged by their talent rather than their gender and achieve the ultimate revenge when they expose their true identity. Leading up to the reveal of their ultimate disguise as a male, each individual is coached by experts for weeks learning how to adapt their movement and speech. They are then tasked with venturing out into the real world to test this training by going about their normal routines in both professional settings and facing their closest friends and family members. Documenting their inspiring journeys, the women learn a lot about themselves and inspire change in others as they seek to discover how wide the gender gap really is.
