Academy Award-nominated director Liz Garbus is reportedly shooting a new series for Showtime.

It will see Garbus embedded inside The New York Times, following how the media organization covers news in the era of President Donald Trump.

This will not be the first time The Times has opened its doors to filmmakers. Director Andrew Rossi pulled back the curtain of the New York newsroom in the 2011 documentary Page One: Inside the New York Times.

While Showtime declined to comment, Garbus took to Twitter to retweet a CNN story regarding the new doc, tentatively titled The Fourth Estate.

Garbus’ past projects include the Oscar-nominated What Happened, Miss Simone? and The Farm: Angola, USA. Her credits also include Bobby Fischer Against the World, Ghosts of Abu Graib and Street Fight.

The Fourth Estate will reportedly be produced for Showtime by Radical Media and Impact Partners.
