Here's what ECW Press has to say about its product:

The biography of television’s favorite kick-ass heroine
She can be seen weekly on television screens in 50 countries worldwide. For a recent talk show filmed in Toronto, fans from as far away as Florida flew up to catch a glimpse of her in person. This year she’ll star in a feature film based on a best-selling novel. The star that has television viewers buzzing? Peta.
Peta Wilson has joined the ranks of television’s new breed of kick-ass heroines in La Femme Nikita, the usa Network’s edgy and stylish hit show. She plays Nikita, who has been wrongly convicted of a murder, and is pressed into service by a secret government group: Section One. Wilson brings an extraordinary mix of compassion, vulnerability, and tough-as-nails street-smarts to her role as Nikita, and the show has gone from cult hit status to its position as the number-one rated original cable drama in the U.S.
This Australian beauty was once a virtual unknown but now graces the covers of magazines across the globe and delights talk-show audiences with her uniquely honest and irrepressible style. She’s an accomplished athlete and successful international model who honed her acting skills with years of training in the theater at the respected Actors Circle Theater in Los Angeles.
La Femme Peta reveals what brought Peta Wilson to television screens across America and just where this new star is headed. Go behind the scenes of her hit show, learn about her co-stars, and read the complete three-season episode commentary. The book also discusses the show’s huge following on the Internet as we examine some of the best (and oddest) sites devoted to Wilson and La Femme Nikita, and features 16 pages of color photos.
