( ENSPIRE News ) CNN’s Lisa Long Has A Deal With HBO Max For A Documentary Series About Birth, Weddings, and Funerals
Long is known for her iconic storytelling and asking the hard question during investigating interviews, but one of her goals was to produce a documentary series that focus on different cultures’ lifestyles as they birth children, go through stress handling marriages, and dealing with death.
“We are living in a deeply polarized world and I am elated for the opportunity to bring us closer to one another through stories about the most defining moments in people’s lives: their Births, Weddings, and Funerals,” said Lisa Ling.
“As part of the CNN family, Lisa has carved out a unique space for herself using her style of gritty, investigative journalism to drive at the heart of every human story she tells,” said Jennifer O’Connell, executive vice president, original content, HBO Max. “Birth, Wedding, Funeral takes audiences on a global journey through a range of societies, exploring the rituals around three critical life events and we are eager to bring this illuminating story to light.”
Showing the other spectrum of what other cultures deal with on a daily will give insight to America about certain issues and advantages that Americans take for granted. It will be an educational look into what other cultures have to endure to keep their families together, as well as show how universal a positive support system helps families through the struggle of life.
