Synopsis

The new TV series from The New York Times
 
‘The Weekly’ is a landmark new series from The New York Times, bringing the newspaper’s unparalleled journalism and insight to the TV screen.

 
1,600 journalists. 160 countries. 2,500 stories a week. Each half-hour episode focuses on one of those stories, and a New York Times reporter brings it to life, providing in-depth reporting that will completely change how you see a story.

 
From investigative journalism to political scoops, to reports from the front line and stories that literally change our culture, ‘The Weekly’ goes beyond US and international news to find the big, signature stories that nobody else is telling, and to reveal the workings of one of the world’s great news organizations.   


In a time of intense debate about the role of a free press, ‘The Weekly’ is an exceptional new series that provides a unique insight into how the news is reported.


Due to exclusive and sensitive nature of some of the episodes, please contact your sales executive directly for additional episodic information and screeners.

Additional Information

  • Commissioned by FX and Hulu in the US
  • Produced by The New York Times and award-winning producers Left/ Right (‘This American Life’, ‘The Circus’)
  • Delves into one story each week — with the Times journalists who have reported on an issue for months or, in many cases, years — to produce authoritative news documentaries on the most important issues of our time
  • More than 30 reporters will appear in the first season of “The Weekly,” covering stories in the United States and around the world that you will not see elsewhere
  • Reporters include: Rukmini Callimach, an international correspondent in the Investigative unit who covers global terrorism for The Times, traveling to the world’s most hostile states; Nicholas Case, the Andes bureau chief who covers South America and beyondBrian Rosenthal and Emma Fitzsimmons, who cover transportation in New YorkCaitlin Dickerson, whose reporting on immigration has set the national agenda and influenced federal policy decisions; Matt Apuzzo, a European investigative correspondent who spent years breaking stories as a national security reporter
  • One story a week gives us the time to tell it right, to show our reporters piecing together the facts, connecting the details, asking the tough questions — all in pursuit of the truth. It gives us time to get to know each other, too. You will see our journalists in the muck of the reporting journey, which can be exhilarating, messy and backbreakingly frustrating, all at once.
