This Sunday, The New York Times is expanding to a journalistic platform it has never tackled before: television. Each half-hour episode of the new docuseries The Weekly, which debuts Sunday at 10 p.m. ET on FX with episodes streaming on Hulu the following day, will focus on a different Times reporter and story.
The 30-episode first season of The Weekly will spotlight such Times stories as the investigations into Louisiana’s T.M. Landry College Prep—which exposed transcript fraud, physical violence and emotional abuse at the school—and New York’s yellow cab industry, which has trapped thousands of immigrants in reckless loans.
