Top Secret Rosies – Television Series
Logline: Top Secret Rosies”, an hour long dramatic series, is a fictionalized retelling of the true story of women, math and technology that helped win WWII and usher in the modern computer age.
In 1942, a secret U.S. military program was launched to recruit women to the war effort. But unlike the public efforts to recruit Rosie to the factory, this search targeted female mathematicians who would become human computers for the U.S. Army. It is now 1944 and the war is no closer to ending. The Army needs more women mathematicians and a national call goes out. Philadelphia sisters, DEE and ADDIE KOHL, Iowa farm girl BRITA YAGER and New Yorker GRACE NEWSOME (the only African-American recruited for the program) answer the call. Along the way, they discover opportunity, unity – even love – amid the chaos of a world at war.
