Korea Takes Center Stage in New ZED Doc


Korea: The Never-Ending War, a two-hour documentary, is being co-produced by U.S. pubcaster WETA and ARK Media in association with France’s ZED, which is on board as distributor.

Korea: The Never-Ending War, directed by ARK Media’s John Maggio, will bring critical historical context to the current crisis taking place in the country. It will also showcase new evidence from recently opened archives in Russia, the U.S., China and South Korea that has changed history books. The doc is being executive produced by Jeff Bieber and Dalton Delan for WETA. It is slated for broadcast in late 2018.

Manuel Catteau, the president of ZED, commented: “Being on the brink of a major nuclear conflict, Korea has become the most dangerous place on Earth and the series will reveal how we [got] there because the current battle lines are the same [as] those of 1953.”
