The first trailer for the much-anticipated Hillary and Chelsea Clinton docu-series Gutsy has dropped and it's looking pretty great. 

Set to premiere on Apple TV+ on September 9, the eight-part documentary sees the mother-daughter duo in conversation around the country with a number of "gutsy" women who inspire them. 

What is Gutsy about?

In each episode, 74-year-old Hillary and 42-year-old Chelsea get into deep conversation about life, love, family, career and more with a number of women that they consider personal heroes, including Glennon Doyle, Dr. Jane Goodall, Mariska Hargitay, Goldie Hawn, Kate Hudson, Kim Kardashian, Megan Thee Stallion, Amber Ruffin, Amy Schumer, Gloria Steinem, Wanda Sykes, Symone (aka Reggie Gavin), Abby Wambach, Natalie Wynn (aka ContraPoints) and more.

As seen in the trailer, each woman gets candid about the essence of womanhood within the various careers and industries that they've been a part of their whole lives. 

The series is actually based on The New York Times bestselling book The Book of Gutsy Women, co-authored by the mother-daughter pair. Just as is the case on the new show, in the book, Hillary and Chelsea tell the stories of the gutsy and resilient women who have inspired them throughout the years.

"Growing up, I knew hardly any women who worked outside the home," Hillary said in an official statement connected to the release of the book. "So I looked to my mother, my teachers, and the pages of Life magazine for inspiration. After learning that Amelia Earhart kept a scrapbook with newspaper articles about successful women in male-dominated jobs, I started a scrapbook of my own. Long after I stopped clipping articles, I continued to seek out stories of women who seemed to be redefining what was possible."
