Cady McClain (Dixie, ALL MY CHILDREN; ex-Kelly, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS; Rosanna, AS THE WORLD TURNS) has spent the last year interviewing movers and shakers of the entertainment industry to glean insight about the challenges faced by women directors for a new documentary series titled Seeing Is Believing: Women Direct.

Not only was she seeking to learn something about the career that she’s transitioning into herself, but she also wanted to be of service to young women coming up behind her. “There is a very delicate balance between being strong and being soft,” McClain tells Soaps In Depth of what she’s learned thus far. “You don’t have to give up your femininity to be a leader.
With the first episode of her series now completed, McClain couldn’t be more passionate about the importance of the project. “I think art is really important because it’s where society tends to look for deeper answers,” she offers. “So I hope this documentary will encourage women, in particular, to continue to tell their stories, speak out and know that there are people who want to hear it.”
