On the heels of Framing Britney Spears and The Killing of Breonna Taylor, FX is expanding its partnership with The New York Times by ordering additional documentaries under The New York Times Presents banner.
The eighth film from the series — Move Fast Vape Things, a documentary about e-cigarette company Juul — is scheduled to premiere in September on FX and Hulu. It will draw on investigative work by the Times to reveal how the Silicon Valley darling lost its way and is now accused of introducing a new scourge to youth: vaping.
Produced by The New York Times and Left/Right, a Red Arrow Studios company, the series comprises standalone docs powered by the work of New York Times journalists, and hails from the same team behind FX and Hulu’s The Weekly.
Executive producers are Ken Druckerman, Banks Tarver, Mary Robertson, Jason Stallman, Sam Dolnick and Stephanie Preiss.
Framing Britney Spears (pictured) recently picked up Emmy nominations for Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Special and Outstanding Picture Editing for a Nonfiction Program, as well as a TCA Award nomination for Outstanding Achievement in News and Information. The New York Times Presents also won the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding News/Information (Series or Special) for The Killing of Breonna Taylor.
Stallman said in a release: “The New York Times is thrilled to continue our partnership with FX. Their savvy, creative team has been invaluable in helping our newsroom expand its documentary ambitions. Our goals and mission are aligned in creating films that are truly distinctive, surprising viewers with new perspectives and bringing them stories that have impact across the world.”
