DESCRIPTION:
(from Pivot's press release, December 2015) Participant Media announced today a January 22 premiere date for Pivot's new Brian Knappenberger (The Internet's Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz) executive-produced docu-series "Truth and Power." The channel also announced that Oscar(R)-nominated actress Maggie Gyllenhaal ("The Honorable Woman," The Dark Knight) will narrate the ten-part series. Additionally, Pivot greenlit a twenty episode season two of "Secret Lives of Americans," a third season of "Human Resources," and announced four unscripted projects in development. Scripted development will be announced in early 2016. "Truth and Power," which will air Fridays at 10 pm ET, centers on the very timely question, "What happens when private institutions and governments abuse their power and break the public trust?" Each half hour-long episode pulls the curtain back on stories of ordinary people going to extraordinary lengths to reveal corporate exploitation and infringement on civil liberties resulting from government overreach. Certain authorities and organizations are attempting to silence dissent and hinder 21st century social movements in ways that directly threaten democracy.
