American Dynasties: The Bushes - American Dynasties: The Bushes is a CNN Original Series, produced by London-based production company, RAW. It follows in the footsteps of the top-rated American Dynasties: The Kennedys. The series explores the Bush family's complex internal dynamics, fraternal rivalries, influential matriarchs and extreme competitive spirit which drove them to power.

The series, produced by Zero Point Zero, will take viewers back to a time in America when people believed in the goodness of big corporations, had high hopes for racial parity, and looked to unions and the government to solve their problems.

The Redemption Project - The Redemption Project is an eight-part CNN Original Series produced by Citizen Jones and directed by Academy Award-nominated filmmaker, Jason Cohen. Each episode follows the victim - or surviving family members - of a life-altering crime as they journey to meet face-to-face with their offender in the hopes of finding answers or seeking some sense of closure. Van Jones will serve as a guide for the viewer throughout this transformational experience. Through unique access to the U.S. prison system, and a rare glimpse into the restorative justice process, this powerful series will explore the human potential for redemption.
