Discovery Preps Border Live


Discovery plans to document the work of law enforcement on the U.S.-Mexico border as well as explore the lives, moments and stories of those who live and work alongside it in Border Live.

Each week, Discovery will broadcast live from its New York-based studio. The show will be hosted by Bill Weir, who will track the action and stories as they unfold live from the U.S.-Mexico border. Lilia Luciano will be interviewing some of the people who live and work along the border. The six-part multiplatform series will begin airing live on December 5.

Border Live is produced for Discovery Channel by Lucky 8 (60 Days In).

Nancy Daniels, chief brand officer for Discovery and factual, said: “The U.S.-Mexico border has been the focus of our national dialogue over the last several years. Our goal with this project is to shine a light on epic stories through immersive experiences, and we will turn that lens on one of the biggest and most important stories of our time.”
