NBC7’s STOLEN Documentary Goes National on NBCLX

Posted on by editor

Executive Director of the BSCC Marisa Ugarte appears in STOLEN in a role she is very familiar with.   Ms Ugarte works closley with the San Diego Human Trafficking Task Force when there are victims involved in an active case.  In this NBC7 production you can see her up close helping in the ongoing fight against human trafficking.

Dear Friends,

January, as you may know, is Human Trafficking Awareness month. I am pleased to report the good news that the NBC7 Stolen Documentary Series will be debuting as an hour and a half documentary. You can watch the documentary on NBC’s National LX network this Saturday, January 9th at 7 PM (PST).  NBCLX is broadcasting over the air and on cable in 30 US markets, all top 25.  It reaches 32 million households.  NBCLX is also streaming on LX.com, Peacock and available in the NBC Owned Station digital products and apps.

This new level of exposure for STOLEN required us to consolidate the seven-episode series into a feature-length 90-minute documentary. It was a painstaking process to make these edits while preserving the heart of the investigation and, most importantly, the survivors’ voices. Those with lived experience deserve a tremendous amount of recognition for their strength and courage in sharing their message for others’ benefit.  Our mission is to share the truth surrounding this issue with as broad an audience as possible.  We are grateful for the opportunity this national launch provides.

The documentary is expected to air on NBCLX more than once.  If you’d like to watch its debut live this Saturday evening (7PM Pacific/10PM Eastern) the best way to watch may be through NBC’s Peacock app. The attached graphic lists the local San Diego cable channels where you can watch.

Thank you for your continued support.
