LOS ANGELES, CA, January 6, 2003 – This March, WE: WOMEN'S ENTERTAINMENT will present four new episodes of the original series, WHEN I WAS A GIRL. The new half-hour episodes, produced by Linda Ellerbee's Lucky Duck Productions, will continue to showcase high-profile women of all ages and backgrounds who reveal personal stories from their childhood.

Hosted by Sex and the City's Kristin Davis, the original episodes will feature Sigourney Weaver, Mary Steenburgen, Ellen DeGeneres, Sandra Bernhard, Candace Bushnell, Jane Kaczmarek, Chris Evert, Gladys Knight, Melissa Etheridge and Kathy Najimy, among others.

WHEN I WAS A GIRL offers viewers a rare glimpse into the early years of these famous females. Focusing on previously untold stories from their youth, the series celebrates the similarities that all women share while evolving from girls into women. From the time when parents seemed all-knowing, to the awkward era of adolescence, the women share intimate memories as they speak candidly from the heart. While the stories are personal, when told collectively, these recollections reveal the shared experience of all girls.
