National Geographic Channel is to delve into the divisive American subcultures of white supremacists and homophobic churchgoers in the six-part series American Fringe (pictured).

Each episode will focus on a different U.S. community that is significant for unorthodox beliefs, such as a rural “Nazi town” in North Dakota and the notorious Westboro Baptist Church of Kansas.  The series also promises to provide rare footage of these groups and candid first-person interviews from community members, as well as their opponents.

The series will premiere Stateside on July 9 at 10 p.m. EST/PST.

American Fringe is produced for National Geographic Channel by Breaking Amish and Amish Mafia firm Hot Snakes Media. Exec producers for the group are Eric Evangelista and Shannon Evangelista, while Robert Palumbo is exec producing for Nat Geo.
