Angelina Jolie is making a TV show to help teens spot fake news

Angelina Jolie doesn’t appear to be dwelling on those Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston photos that rocked the internet. She’s too busy coming to TV — well, sort of.

The movie star is teaming up with the BBC to make a show called “BBC My World,” a program that aims to help young people over the age of 13 spot fake news. The series’ purpose is to encourage teens to think about a variety of global issues and help them distinguish the level of quality between various sources.

“As a parent, I am happy to be able to give my support to a program that aims to help children learn more about the lives of other young people around the world, and connect … to each other,” Jolie, 44, said in a statement. “I hope it will help children find the information and tools they need to make a difference on the issues that matter to them, drawing on the BBC World Service’s network of thousands of journalists and multiple language services around the world.”

Jolie has six children of her own: three biological children (Shiloh, 13, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 11) and three adopted internationally from Cambodia, Vietnam, and Ethiopia, respectively (Maddox, 18, Pax, 16, and Zahara, 15).

Jolie is also set to star in the high-profile Marvel movie “Eternals,” opposite “Game of Thrones” stars Kit Harington and Richard Madden, out Nov. 6.

“BBC My World” will be a weekly half-hour program airing Sundays at 11:30 a.m. on BBC World News and will also be made available via a YouTube channel, according to Variety. The program does not yet have an air date.
