The first season of "Dark Rye" will highlight topics ranging from artists seeking social justice to entrepreneurs rebuilding Detroit to culinary masters maintaining sustainable food traditions. "Dark Rye" joins a lineup on Pivot that includes "Please Like Me," "HITRECORD ON TV," and the network's late-night topical show "TakePart Live."
