Fox News Has Unveiled The Programming Lineup For Its Streaming Service
Fox News Channel has released the programming lineup for its upcoming streaming service this fall and given a glimpse at its upcoming documentaries, investigative series, and patriotic specials viewers of the news network are sure to appreciate. The network has teased a healthy amount of programming that will appear on the service ahead of its release, which includes programming from Fox News personalities exclusive to Fox Nation.
Shows about current events will be part of Fox Nation, as The First Family will give a behind the scene look at the Trump family in office. The first episode of the series will follow President Donald Trump's son Eric as he gives viewers a look at his life outside of the headlines. The episode will also feature a sit-down interview with FOX Business Network's Maria Bartiromo, who will get Eric Trump's perspective on everything from family to politics.
Fox Nation will also feature Gregg Jarrett's: The Russia Hoax, which will be hosted by Fox News Legal Analyst Gregg Jarrett. The show is said to feature Jarrett's in-depth analysis of the FBI investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Beyond this for Fox News, Jarrett is also known as the New York Times best-selling author of the book The Russia Hoax: The Illicit Scheme to Clear Hillary Clinton and Frame Donald Trump.
Fox Nation has also enlisted the help of Fox & Friends host co-host Brian Kilmeade, who will host the program What Made America Great. The program will examine modern history of some of America's most iconic locations, and the ongoing controversies surrounding them. Monuments teased in the summary mentioned Mount Rushmore, The Alamo, Fort Jefferson and Fraunces Tavern.
Crime will also be a part of Fox Nation's programming, as mysteries unsolved or otherwise will get examined in at least two shows. Los Angeles detective Mark Fuhrman will dive into his thoughts and analysis on various crimes from O.J. to JFK in The Fuhrman Diaries. Another show, Riddle: The Search For James R. Hoffa, will examine the disappearance of Hoffa and touts new forensic details from the crime scene.
Fox Nation will feature a series of programming spun off its docuseries Scandalous, which originally aired on the Fox News. Scandalous: Chappaquiddick will dive into the 1969 accident with former Senator Ted Kennedy, and features interviews with the victim's family and people who remember the accident. Scandalous: The Mysterious Case of Tawana Brawley will detail the controversial rape case that involved the Duke Lacrosse team. Scandalous: ABSCAM will follow the story of Mel Weinberg and the FBI sting that later inspired the film American Hustle. Fox Nation will also have a director's cut of Scandalous, which will have extended footage.
Fox Nation will feature original programming centered on the Supreme Court, as the confirmation of Supreme Court judges will be examined. Specifically, the network will feature a series on Judge Robert Bork called Borked, which will examine and explore his confirmation hearing. Sean Hannity will step in for Fox Nation for a show called Hannity's America: The Clarence Thomas Story which, like Borked, will examine his confirmation hearing but also his story leading up to the Supreme Court.
Fox Nation will get into the grit of the takedown of the notorious dictator in Ace of Spades: The Hunt for Saddam Hussein. The program will feature interviews with soldiers, military leaders and intelligence officers who will lay out how America successfully tracked down former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein.
Other programming on Fox Nation includes a best of Watters World collection, which will feature 20+ hours of Jesse Watters' previously aired segments on Fox News Channel.
