Several of the key cast and crew members of the upcoming Reelz series Bomb Girls shared their thoughts about the upcoming show and why the period drama will appeal to modern viewers. Find out more about the era the show is set in, the universal appeal of the characters’ stories, and the risks the real life bomb girls took by working in those factories.
Bomb Girls, starring Golden Globe-Award winner Meg Tilly (Agnes of God, The Big Chill), takes place during World War II and captures a period when society was experiencing fundamental changes in the workplace and at home. At the heart of Bomb Girls are the stories of women who risk their lives in a munitions factory in support of the European front. Liberated from social and cultural restrictions, they embraced their newfound freedom, changing their lives—and the world around them—forever.
