As journalism and its soldiers continue to take fire from the highest office in the land, The New York Times continues its push back with a new half-hour narrative documentary series “The Weekly,” premiering Sunday, June 2, at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX, with exclusive streaming premieres available on Hulu the following day.
The show takes viewers beyond the written story with Times’s reporters who break the news. Each half-hour episode features a Times journalist investigating one of the most pressing issues of the day.
With more than 1,550 journalists reporting from 160 countries each year, the Times publishes 250 stories a day – investigative reports, political scoops, cultural dispatches. And each week, The Weekly chooses to tell one of these stories in a visual and unforgettable way.
The Weekly is produced by The New York Times and Left/Right. Executive producers of The Weekly are Mat Skene, Jason Stallman, Sam Dolnick, Stephanie Preiss, Ken Druckerman, and Banks Tarver.
FX has the first-run North American rights to The Weekly, in partnership with Hulu, which will be the exclusive SVOD streaming home to new episodes of the series the day after air. In addition to the FX linear telecast and Hulu, episodes will also be available on FX’s VOD services, FXNOW (with commercials) and FX+ (commercial-free) to authenticated subscribers.
