Jennifer Beals Takes on Sexual Assault in the Military in Web Series Lauren
Jennifer Beals
Troian Bellisario and Jennifer Beals are taking on a very serious issue: sexual assault in the military.

In the second season of Lauren, a series created by WIGS – the no. 1 channel on YouTube for scripted drama – Bellisario plays Lauren, a soldier who reports a sexual assault.

And as Beals's iconic film Flashdance celebrates it's 30th anniversary, she takes on a very different role as Major Jo Stone, who plays opposite Bellisario.

Previously, the WIGS channel also produced Blue, a series starring Julia Stiles as the title character, a woman who works as a prostitute coming to terms with her troubled past.



In this intense new clip, Lauren is forced to choose between what she loves and what's right. Get an exclusive sneak peek before the series premieres on YouTube on Friday, May 3:
