  • Diane Sawyer‘s first special since leaving “World News Tonight” is in the final stages of production. Sawyer has spent eight months traveling to four women’s prisons for a look at life behind bars. The report airs Friday at 10pmET.
  • CNN’s new 6-part series “Finding Jesus” debuts Sunday at 9pm, and culminates Easter Sunday. The series features the latest scientific and archaeological research and investigates the authenticity of six objects which could shed new light on Jesus.
  • MSNBC has a simpler graphic look. “Similar to the 2014 changes by CNN, the updates include an updated header bar and lower third. The new L3 has a singular focus, and removes the previous branding box,” NewscastStudio reports.
