Showtime will premiere Liz Garbus’ four-part documentary series on The New York Times on May 27, the network announced at this weekend’s TCA winter press tour.
With a working title of “The Fourth Estate,” the series follows the newspaper and its journalists as they cover the first year of the Trump administration.
“The Times is an odd and confounding muse for the current president,” said producer/director Garbus in a statement. “Trump craves the positive coverage of his hometown paper while simultaneously denigrating the ‘failing New York Times‘ on what seems to be a daily basis.”
