Original Web Series, Added By You!
Yesterday, CNN announced the creation of CNN Films to produce and acquire feature-length documentaries for TV, online and theatrical distribution. The move is part of a wider programming strategy to complement CNN's news programs. The first documentary 'Girl Rising' will air spring 2013. The film reveals extraordinary stories from girls around the globe, fighting to overcome impossible odds on the road to realizing their dreams of education.
Amy Entelis, senior vice president of talent and content development for CNN Worldwide, and Vinnie Malhotra, senior vice president of development and acquisitions for CNN Worldwide, will oversee the acquisition strategy of documentaries under the CNN Films banner. Malhotra will manage the day-to-day operation of CNN Films, and work directly with filmmakers to develop original projects.
