Axios has signed a deal with HBO to produce a limited docu-news series airing this fall. The series will feature breaking news, interviews with the world’s most influential leaders, and short documentaries on the topics that matter most. The WSJ has more details here.
Why it matters: Axios will work with HBO and a cast of Emmy®-winning producers to help viewers better understand the collision of politics, technology, business and the world. The series is co-directed and co-produced by Perri Peltz and Matthew O'Neil.
“The world needs new, smarter ways to better understand the dominant personalities and definitive trends changing politics, business, technology and our lives. We see this combination of HBO, Axios and award-winning storytellers as a powerful way of bringing clarity and meaning to the most consequential topics.”— Axios CEO Jim VandeHei
