The new FX and Hulu series, Children of the Underground, tells Mama’s story of how she hides children and mothers from sexual abuse

NEW YORK — It was a story that made headlines and sparked heated debate.

A mother who had failed the legal system has used her own form of vigilante justice for other mothers and children.

Children of the Underground tells the story of Faye Yager’s efforts to protect sexually abused children by helping them escape.

The new five-part docuseries premieres Friday night on FX and streams on Hulu.

The trajectory of Yager’s life changed forever when she caught her ex-husband molesting her daughter.

She was determined not to let what happened to her child happen to anyone else.

Children of the Underground tells the story of the network Yager built.

In the late 1980s and early 1990s, Yager’s organization helped parents and their children go into hiding after fleeing an abusive parent.

The underground tried to protect families when the legal system failed to do so.

“She protected them like they were her own children,” said Michelle French.

French is Yager’s daughter and an abuse survivor. She can be seen in the docuseries alongside other survivors who share their emotional stories, including their disillusionment with a family court system they call “broken”.

“We want to work on legislation to actually physically change the system,” French said.

Yager’s fearless fight for families got her into the headlines and eventually into court.

“Children of the Underground” allows those who had a front row seat to tell the important story.

Executive producers said they wanted to allow Yager to have the final say in storytelling.

All five episodes will premiere back-to-back on August 12 starting at 8pm ET/PT on FX and stream exclusively on Hulu the next day.
