NBA Legend and Emmy(R) Winner Charles Barkley Ignites Conversation on Race in TNT's Two-Night Television Event "American Race"

Charles Barkley, NBA legend and Sports Emmy(R)-winning commentator for TNT's Inside the NBA, has been dealing with the issue of race his entire life. Now in American Race, a two-night television event from Turner's TNT, he is taking a journey across the country to explore the issue from different angles and engage in thoughtful but spirited dialogue with a diverse cross section of Americans. He brings with him a truly ambitious goal of building the kind of mutual understanding that can lead to productive solutions.

TNT's American Race will air over two nights - Thursday, May 11, and Friday, May 12 - with two episodes each night at 9 and 10 p.m. (ET/PT). In addition, TNT will offer a preview of the first episode on Sunday, May 7, at 11:30 p.m. (ET/PT), following the network's coverage of the NBA Playoffs. And on Monday, May 8, all four episodes will be made available to subscribers through VOD and on the TNT app.

Troubled by the way racism and other forms of discrimination have affected so many communities, Barkley has made it his personal mission not only to learn about varying perspectives but also to give a voice to those most impacted by discrimination. In American Race, he will hone in on such topics as police and race relations, Muslims in America, immigration issues and Hollywood stereotyping. The results are shockingly provocative and strikingly emotional, with Barkley finding his own preconceived notions being examined and challenged in each episode.

Everything is on the table in American Race as Barkley sets out to generate meaningful dialogue and support potential solutions. Along the way, he engages with everyday people as well as cultural and academic experts, eventually realizing that his own views continue to evolve.

American Race is produced by Turner's Studio T, in association with DocShop Inc. and KIN TV STUDIOS. Serving as executive producers on American Race are Charles Barkley, Lee Kyle Gaither, Marc Perman and Emmy(R) winner Dan Partland, who also oversaw the acclaimed documentary series The Sixties for TNT's sister network CNN.
