Jessica Alba (Fantastic Four, Machete) has signed on to star in the upcoming Disney+ docuseries, Parenting Without Borders. Deadline reports the series is described as “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown for parenting.” The report goes on to explain:
The travel show will follow Alba, an actress, producer, entrepreneur and mother of three, as she immerses herself with families around the world, exploring the parenting beliefs and practices shaping families today.
The series is based on the 2013 book, Parenting Without Borders: Surprising Lessons Parents Around the World Can Teach Us, by Christine Gross-Loh, Ph.D. The book “reveals the surprising ways in which culture shapes parenting in countries like Finland, Sweden, Germany, France, Japan, China, Italy, and more, and offers research-based insight into what strategies are best for children and why.”
Alba is also executive producing the series alongside fellow actress and mother Gabrielle Union. This sounds like a good and informative series for parents and fans of documentaries alike. Does it pique your interest?
