From Maria Shiver’s groundbreaking multi-platform project “The Shriver Report: A Woman’s Nation Pushes Back from the Brink,” "PAYCHECK TO PAYCHECK: THE LIFE & TIMES OF KATRINA GILBERT"
tells the moving story of a year in the life of one mother whose daily struggles illuminate the challenges faced by more than 42 million American women and the 28 million children who depend on them. Directed and produced by Shari Cookson and Nick Doob (HBO’s Emmy®-winning “The Memory Loss Tapes”) and executive produced by Peabody and Emmy® winner Maria Shriver (HBO’s “The Alzheimer’s Project”) and HBO’s Sheila Nevins, the film is the unvarnished account of a single mom struggling to get ahead, but constantly getting knocked back by a system that almost seems designed to see her fail.
“We all know Katrina Gilbert – she’s our friend, our sister, our daughter, struggling to make her way in the world,” says Shriver. “Understanding what challenges she faces, and seeing how optimistic she is in the face of such challenges, is the key to building woman’s economic empowerment.” (Source:
