News & Interviews for The New Yorker Presents: Season 1
All four of these pieces, and especially Demme's mini-documentary, are capably done, but they feel like supporting materials you would want to come across as bonus content on The New Yorker website.

Guided by its values and standards, the publication continues to be a leader and succeeds with such a challenge.
The pilot was undeniably fascinating, but the potential of The New Yorker Presents to become more of a staple in television or online programming is even more exciting.
This is the most original of Amazon's productions: an attempt at a magazine-style show based on nothing less than The New Yorker.
