8 Minutes is an American reality documentary television series that premiered on April 2, 2015 on A&E. The reality show chronicles ex-police officer Pastor Kevin Brown meeting sex workers and attempting to convince them to quit the profession within eight minutes.
The show has been controversial for its storytelling, tactics of approaching women with hidden cameras and myths about sex work. The show is executive produced by Tom Forman, who previously worked on another controversial sex-themed reality program Sex Box.
Eight episodes of the program were ordered, however only five have been broadcast in America. In May 2015, A&E announced it was removing the program from its schedule following controversy surrounding the series, and the network isn't planning to air the remaining three episodes, effectively cancelling the series.
