"This project is important to each and every one of us," said Amy Winter, executive vice-president and head of programming during the panel.

The film aims to "bring attention to the appalling issue of human sex trafficking" – a topic network bosses say "inspired" Anne during production.

Actor Larissa Dias and director Elisabeth Rohm appeared on the panel as Rohm confirmed that the film is finished and will air in September.

Rohm said: "Although [Anne] is deeply missed, right now, I will say the film is finished and she did a phenomenal performance – a tour de force."

Anne's death was announced last night (Friday) by her close friend Nancy Davis who lead the tributes after her life support was switched off.
