Felicity was an American drama television series created by J. J. Abrams and Matt Reeves and produced by Touchstone Television and Imagine Television for The WB. Brian Grazer and Ron Howard were executive producers through Imagine Entertainment.

The series revolves around the college experiences of the title character, Felicity Porter (portrayed by Keri Russell), as she attends the ‘University of New York’ (based on New York University), which lies across the country from her home in Palo Alto, California. The show ran for four seasons from 29 September 1998 to 22 May 2002, with each season corresponding to the traditional American university divisions of freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior years.

In an episode entitled Drawing The Line Part II, Kate Bush’s This Woman’s Work was used in a scene where one of the major characters was dealing with the outcome of a date rape. The episode was broadcast in February 1999.

J.J. Abrams about ‘This Woman’s Work’

We’ve gotten more response from this song [This Woman’s Work] than any other because it’s so heartbreaking. It’s heard after Julie has been date-raped and Ben comes to her with advice that he wouldn’t give to many people because he’s not a communicative person. The gesture and feelings Julie and Ben share are enormously enhanced by this song at an emotional point that requires you to cry.
