Lisa Ling will make her CNN debut later this month.
“This is Life With Lisa Ling” premieres September 28 at 10pmET. The original series follows Ling’s travels across the country as she introduces “sub-cultures and communities that are unusual, extraordinary and sometimes dangerous,” according to a CNN release. The eight-episode, hour-long programs will be co-produced by Ling and Part2 Pictures’ Amy Bucher and David Shadrack Smith.
“I have always believed that the more we know about each other, the more evolved we become,” Ling said. “I am absolutely thrilled to bring stories of everyday people with extraordinary lives to the premier global journalism platform, CNN. I hope viewers will open their hearts and minds to the incredible worlds we’re about to explore together.”
