DESCRIPTION:
(from HBO's press release, March 2019) Covering a wide range of social and cultural issues, the critically lauded late-night docuseries WYATT CENAC'S PROBLEM AREAS kicks off its ten-episode second season FRIDAY, APRIL 5 (11:00-11:30 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO. The Emmy(R)- and WGA Award-winning comedian and writer offers his unique perspective on topics from the trivial to the impactful, mixing in-studio commentary, comedic segments and documentary-style field reports. The series is also available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and partners' streaming platforms. This season focuses on education in America, investigating teacher pay, student mental health, the school-to-prison pipeline and other pressing topics. Cenac will visit West Virginia, Oregon, California, Minnesota and other areas around the country to learn how communities navigate issues facing public education. While education today serves as the season's primary focus, WYATT CENAC'S PROBLEM AREAS will address other issues, including the unionization of fast-food workers and the potential dangers of facial recognition software, as well as comedic solutions to lighter topics, such as how to get more steps in at the office or how to teach kids practical skills, like filing taxes.
