According to the outlet, the show is based on the upcoming documentary The Canal by Will Battersby and the upcoming book by Keith O’Brien titled Paradise Falls.

It follows a group of blue collar women who worked together to fight for environmental justice in the late 1970s.

Variety writes, “The women became activists when they realized that 20,000 tons of deadly chemicals were buried beneath their neighborhood in Niagara Falls, New York. With little formal education or training, they took on the chemical industry and the US government and inspired the first major environmental rights legislation in the US.”

The series is being written by Colette Burson, best known for her work on the HBO show Hung.

Patricia recently shared a crazy story about a first date she had. Find out more here
