In addition to this television show, McGowan also has her book fearless coming out January 30th the same date as the premiere for the show, which will be the beginning of a five-part docuseries chronicling her life as she navigates a post-Harvey Weinstein world.

"This is a global program, and we're going to be in 160 countries", McGowan said of the broad NBCUniversal launch. After being one of the first victims to publicly come forward with accusations against Harvey Weinstein, McGowan says the media is finally realizing that "this person I thought was insane and weird" has "something coming out of her mouth that might make sense".

"Do you understand what I've been through for 20 years?"

With one exception of an allusion to the defamed Weinstein, who McGowan has claimed raped her, questions did not veer into the nitty-gritty.

"I know the people that are behind [the system]", she said.

McGowan also has earned a reputation as something of a flamethrower by speaking out forcefully against what she sees as the entertainment community's hypocrisy in the wake of Weinstein's downfall, tweeting critically about her "Charmed" co-star Alyssa Milano, Meryl Streep and the Time's Up movement.

But she says she's not aiming to be a poster woman for the movement. "It's not an accident that I'm sitting here and I earned it".

She also said the E! series is, in a way, not about her trauma or history.

That said, she doesn't mind the label reality TV "because this is reality - it's mine". "This is not a show about or just for women. I want to be like Gertrude Stein and have a conversation with the world". Asked if she was uncomfortable working with E! as the network was called out over Catt Sadler's departure over pay disparity, the "Grindhouse" star responded, "That came about after I had done my deal".

Rose McGowan is adamant on making her story heard, by any means necessary. While she did not say his name during a television panel, most in the audience concluded she was talking about alleged rapist Harvey Weinstein.

But then she said, "You've got 96-per-cent male directors in the Directors Guild of America". Fix it at every corporation in the city.

And she left the room as she came. McGowan said in a statement accompanying the announcement of CITIZEN ROSE.
