CNN is beginning a new chapter with the launch of its streaming platform, CNN+. With the launch of this streaming service, CNN is also putting together a flash documentary unit. The creation of this documentary team will allow the streaming platform to develop documentaries about important topics as they happen. First up, the CNN+ FlashDocs unit is preparing a documentary that will take a closer look at Jussie Smollett’s legal fight with the Chicago Police Department.
“Introducing CNN+ FlashDocs: a standalone documentary unit exploring timely and topical pop culture stories. We’re kicking off the series with Chicago vs. Jussie Smollett, a stranger-than-fiction saga set in a city that couldn’t afford any more distrust in law and order,” the trailer’s description reads.
CNN+ is starting out with a bang. Check out the Chicago vs. Jussie Smollett documentary trailer before it premieres on April 1, 2022.
