One Hour, Triple the FRONTLINE?
This past Tuesday we premiered our first monthly newsmagazine, part of a new expanded year-round schedule.
We’re not abandoning our traditional hour-long format, but we’re expanding our series in a way that allows us to have more fast-turnaround and timely reports, to follow up on earlier FRONTLINE investigations and to publish more web-exclusive content. As FRONTLINE’s executive producer David Fanning explained at the Television Critics Association press tour a few weeks ago, the new format offers us a chance “to take on stories that always don’t reach the 52 minutes of classic FRONTLINE.”
There’s lots more to come — preview a trailer for our upcoming stories and investigations here — and comment below — tell us what you think of the new format.
