Discovery Channel announced the new series, “Border Live” will go live at the US-Mexico Border premiering December 5th. The six-part series of live broadcasting “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,” according to Discovery’s press release.
Bill Weir, an anchor and special correspondent for CNN, will host the series. “‘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,” says the press release.
Nancy Daniels, Chief Brand Officer, Discovery & Factual said, “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.”
