In this week’s round-up, new unscripted titles are set to air on a range of networks, including Nat Geo Wild, Investigation Discovery and History Channel, as well as digital platform Time.com.

New York-based publisher Time Inc. is slated to mark the 10th anniversary of the Hurricane Katrina disaster with the debut of its six-part docuseries New Orleans, Here and Now.

Produced in partnership with LA-based producer-distributor Rampante, New York indie Killer Films and New Orleans-based Field Office Films, the six stories explore the city’s revival and how Hurricane Katrina played a role in shaping the life of each individual profiled. It will be made available on August 27 through Time.com and across multiple distribution platforms including People.com, Sundance Doc Club and Hulu, as well as for purchase on iTunes, Google Play and Amazon.

Elsewhere, Investigation Discovery is readying the premiere of Death by Gossip with Wendy Williams. Produced by Wendy Williams Productions in association with m2 Pictures, the six-part series uncovers heinous crimes driven by speculation and rumors. The series airs across Investigation Discovery on September 4 at 9 p.m. EST.

History in Canada, meanwhile, will unveil the secret world of military and combat gear factories with the forthcoming industrial series Battle Factory (pictured). The Yap Films-produced 14 x 30-minute series is to spotlight how critical combat devices are engineered and manufactured, and bows with back-to-back episodes on September 11, beginning at 8 p.m. EST.

Finally, Thinkfactory Media’s Vet School is set to premiere across Nat Geo Wild on September 19 at 10 p.m. EST.
