Bloomberg Launches New Series ‘Big Problems. Big Thinkers’

Airing on Bloomberg TV and Bloomberg.com.

Bloomberg has launched a new, six-part series titled Big Problems. Big Thinkers. The show’s first episode will air on Bloomberg TV and Bloomberg.com tonight at 8 p.m. ET and—in a first—in Times Square with closed captions.

BPBT features Terre Blair interviewing a wide variety of leaders like the Dalai Lama and Steven Soderbergh about solutions to the world’s problems.

“This project is an exciting way to reach new audiences and provide our viewers with smart, thought-provoking content that extends beyond day-to-day market activity, yet still has an impact on the business and financial worlds in which they live,” Bloomberg COO said Jacki Kelley, in a statement. “It’s rare that you hear from global leaders such as these on how they would tackle the toughest questions of our time.”
