Gwynth Paltrow — mom, actor, blogger, and now... Flint water crisis documentarian?

In a recent interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Paltrow discusses all types of things including her blog, Goop, and her plans for it. Turns out, those plans include switching to a video platform that will be more "Vice-y" over a talk show like Oprah.

Per THR:
You've mentioned a TV show. Would it be an Oprah-style talk show?

Good morning! (Laughs, doing her best Oprah impression.) No, what we are thinking of doing is a TV show with the working title "The Radical Wellness Show." I would be going into the field and talking to any number of doctors, scientists, civilians, people in crisis in Flint, Michigan, where there is something to uncover and confront about wellness. We would want it to feel more Vice-y in its vibe, but we're just in the brainstorming phase. We signed on with Ben Silverman's production company, Propagate, to help us formalize and pitch it.
Sounds... interesting. Anyway, any attention to Flint's ongoing water crisis is always appreciated. (It has been more than 1,000 days since the city has had clean water.)
