Erin Brockovich is an environmental activist, consumer advocate, renowned crusader, and champion fighter whose courageous case against Pacific Gas and Electric was dramatized in an Oscar-winning film that earned Julia Roberts an Oscar in 2001.
Julia's Brockovich may be frozen in time in the late 20th century, but Erin's Brockovich is fixated on the issues of today. She is older and wiser, yet wickedly funny and refreshing. Nonetheless, like her cinematic Ghost of Brockovich Past, she is still a force of nature and FOR nature.
Erin is the president of Brockovich Research & Consulting and the founder of the Erin Brockovich Foundation, a nonprofit organization created to educate and empower communities in their fight for clean water. She is the co-author of "Take It from Me: Life's a Struggle but You Can Win" and she recently launched a podcast, "Superman's Not Coming," on PodcastOne.
In Erin's long-awaited new book —"Superman's Not Coming: Our National Water Crisis and What We the People Can Do about it" — she makes clear why we are in trouble and warns us that if we're waiting for someone to save us, Superman isn't coming. Nor is the government or the environmental agencies. No one is going to solve this for us. It is up to us, we the people, and Erin shows us how.
Actress Katey Sagal has accepted the challenge of bringing today's eternally turbo-charged Erin to life on television. The "The Sons of Anarchy" and "Married With Children" veteran—most recently seen on "The Conners"—is set to star in "Rebel," the Brockovich-inspired drama that has been picked up for a pilot commitment at ABC. Sagal will be joined by castmates Andy Garcia and John Corbett.
This is Erin's third appearance on JONES.SHOW!
JONES.SHOW is a weekly podcast featuring host Randall Kenneth Jones (author, speaker & creative communications consultant) and Susan C. Bennett (the original voice of Siri).
