WATCH: Exclusive Video - Meet the Team Behind MAKERS: Women Who Make America

It takes a village. And our plan has been to create the largest collection of women's stories ever assembled and share those stories across both television and the internet. A lofty goal. A project as large as MAKERS requires the help, creativity, and passion of a long list of people and organizations.

MAKERS.com has lived online since February of last year but the idea to make a film about the women's movement lived in Founder Dyllan McGee's mind for eight years. With the television broadcast of the film "MAKERS: Women Who Make America" airing this Tuesday February 26th on PBS, we thought we'd introduce you to some of the key behind-the-scene players who helped "MAKE" the documentary and MAKERS.com come to life.

Dyllan McGee, Founder and Executive Producer of MAKERS remarked that "We have everyone from the women that you know like a Martha Stewart, or a Marlo Thomas, or an Oprah Winfrey. But we also have the stories that you may not know but you should know."

Watch our exclusive video to meet others on the behind-the-scenes team and hear what Executive Producer Betsy West, AOL Chairman and CEO Tim Armstrong, and PBS President and CEO Paula Kerger have to say about creating the project as well!

And make sure to tune-in to PBS Tuesday February 26th 8 PM EST (check local listings) for the broadcast premiere of MAKERS: Women Who Make America.
