DESCRIPTION:
(from Discovery Channel's press release, November 2018) Discovery has always taken viewers to places they otherwise could not go on their own - whether it's the depths of the jungle or the turbulent waters of the Bering Sea. Today, Discovery announced it will document the work of law enforcement on the U.S.-Mexico border as well as the real lives, real moments and real stories of those that live and work along its remote stretches in BORDER LIVE. This all-new six-part multiplatform series will broadcast live beginning Wednesday, December 5, airing 9-11 PM ET/PT on Discovery. "The US-Mexico border has been the focus of our national dialogue over the last several years. Our goal with this project is to shine a light on epic stories through immersive experiences, and we will turn that lens on one of the biggest and most important stories of our time," said Nancy Daniels, Chief Brand Officer, Discovery & Factual. Each week, Discovery will broadcast live from its New York-based studio. The show will be hosted by award-winning news journalist Bill Weir, who will track the action and stories as they unfold live from the U.S.-Mexico border. In addition, Weir will engage with experts across a range of border issues, offering insight and perspective on events as they occur. BORDER LIVE crews will be embedded out in the field with officers and special agents at key border sites from Nogales, Ariz., in the west to the Rio Grande Valley and points east. Veteran investigative journalist Lilia Luciano will also be immersed in the field and tackle stories by interviewing a tapestry of people who live and work along the border.
