HBO and The Shriver Report Present ‘Paycheck to Paycheck: The Life and Times of Katrina Gilbert’

Washington, DC–(ENEWSPF)–March 13, 2014.  From Maria Shriver’s groundbreaking multi-platform The Shriver Report: A Woman’s Nation Pushes Back From The Brink in partnership with Center For American Progress comes an emotional film in partnership with HBO Documentary Films that will ignite a conversation in the nation about the story of our time, told through the life of one woman, Katrina Gilbert, whose daily struggles illuminate the challenges faced by 42 million women and the 28 million children who depend on them.

PAYCHECK TO PAYCHECK: THE LIFE & TIMES OF KATRINA GILBERT offers a deeply personal, unvarnished and moving story of Katrina Gilbert, a single mom of three, struggling to get ahead but constantly getting knocked back by a system that almost seems designed to see her fail.  The documentary premieres Monday, March 17th at 9pm on HBO.
