CNN Unveils 2023 Original Series And Films Slate: Projects Include ‘Giuliani,’ Jake Tapper-Hosted ‘United States Of Scandal’ And ‘The 2010s’

CNN unveiled its slate of series and films planned for 2023, as the original projects unit prepares to scale back and take production in house.
The lineup of original series includes Giuliani: What Happened to America’s Mayor?, debuting on Jan. 8, as well as United States of Scandal with Jake Tapper and another devoted to the history of Las Vegas. Tom Hanks, Gary Goetzman, and Mark Herzog also return with another in their “decades” projects, this one focusing on the 2010s.
But the lineup will look far different in coming years, as the network announced in October that it was pulling back on original series and films, ending collaborations with outside partners. Most of the projects on the slate were in the works before the decision was made.
Amy Entelis, executive vice president for talent and content development for CNN Worldwide, said in a statement, “Our CNN Original Series and CNN Films and teams are incredibly proud of the work we have created over the last decade, and we are grateful to our producing partners for bringing so many memorable stories to life.”
Newly announced projects for CNN Films include Blue Carbon and Chowchilla, both of which are working titles.
The lineup of series below:
Giuliani: What Happened to America’s Mayor?: The four part series features interviews with friends and former colleagues, telling the story of how Giuliani went from hero in the aftermath of 9/11 to the chief promoter of 2020 election conspiracy theories. CNN Original Series and Left/Right are partners on the project, which will launch with two episodes on Jan. 8.
