Lifetime, the network for women where women are most often portrayed as killers, murder victims or prostitutes, has a new show lined up for summer! It’s called “The Week That Women Went,” and it’s a documentary mini-series that attempts to show what might happen to a small town if all the women were to disappear.

And yet! The production company RealityReal is seeking a top perfumer to star in its new program about perfumers seeking to produce a new signature scent.
