The Week the Women Went first debuted on BBC Three in the U.K. in 2005, when it quickly became one of the channel’s highest-rated unscripted entertainment series of the year. The social experiment was recreated in the town of Yemassee, South Carolina for the Lifetime TV Network.

Yemassee, South Carolina, is the Focus of A Daring Social Experiment Testing Gender Roles at Home, Work and in the Community when its Women Leave the Town

Via Lifetime TV Network Press Release – Can you imagine a world without women? Which gender is more capable of running society’s day-to-day functions? What impact is today’s shift in gender roles having on the world? Lifetime TV dives deep into the gender gap issue to answer these questions by bringing a daring social experiment to life by removing the women from one American town in the major program event, The Week the Women Went premiering August 14 at 10pm ET/PT of Lifetime TV. Narrated by comedian Jeff Foxworthy, and produced by BBC Worldwide Productions, the five episode, one-hour unscripted series will explore modern gender roles and find out what happens when all of the women leave town, leaving the remaining men to run their households, businesses and community on their own.

Based on the ground-breaking British social experiment format from the BBC, The Week the Yemassee The Week The Women WentWomen Went focuses on the tight-knit community of Yemassee, South Carolina, from which its women left for one week last summer. With the women escaping to an isolated site, the town’s men are left to handle all responsibilities –ranging from making the kids’ breakfast and putting them to bed to maintaining their households and coordinating events — many of which resulted in unforeseen issues forcing them to create a new perspective on life during the seven day experience. Filled with a wide range of dramatic challenges and shocking emotions, Lifetime TV The Week the Women Went will reveal what the men and women of Yemassee surprisingly learn about themselves and their roles in the home, relationships and society as close friendships are tested, unsung heroes recognized, old rivalries renewed and deep secrets exposed during their time apart.

Yemassee, located more than 240 miles northwest of Atlanta, was selected for The Week the Women Went after an extensive search that included nearly 100 towns in the U.S.

Jeff Foxworthy is one of the most respected and successful comedians in the country. He is the largest selling comedy-recording artist in history, a multiple Grammy Award nominee and bestselling author of more than 26 books. Widely known for his Southern-themed comedy, his popular act goes well beyond the region to explore the universal humor in everyday family life, interactions and human nature, a style that has been compared to Mark Twain’s.
