CNN has announced a new original series, Chicagoland, which will debut in early 2014.
The non-scripted, eight-part series explores the politics and people in the iconic American city, examining issues such as education and safety, among others. Chicagoland is executive produced by Sundance Productions’ Robert Redford and Laura Michalchyshyn and BCTV’s Marc Levin and Mark Benjamin.
“CNN is thrilled to collaborate with the team that brought the award-winning Brick City to television, and producers Redford and Michalchyshyn, to spotlight this groundbreaking story,” said Vinnie Malhotra, senior vice president, development and acquisitions, CNN Worldwide, in a statement. “Chicagoland will be shared with CNN’s global audience -- and supported by supplemental reporting on the critical issues explored in the series.”
