This episode is one the most important we will ever broadcast. We’re talking about protecting our daughters and sons from the serious danger living among us. We’ll explore the movement to protect our children from sexual predators, and a new film telling the stories of tragedy and survival of families across the country.


There are few film projects that one can knowingly enter into that will leave a legacy far beyond the box office or talent attached. “Chelsea’s Law” is exactly that. It’s the most important film on the Intelliscape slate, as far as making a difference in society. The subject matter is keeping child predators in prison, one strike. San Diego teenager Chelsea King was brutally raped and murdered by a former child predator in 2010. Her parents, Brent and Kelly, along with Chelsea’s stoic brother Tyler, have made it their mission to ensure other teens and pre adolescents are safer for generations to come by spearheading Chelsea’s Law in California.
