Director Michael Mann (“Heat,” “The Insider”) will work with HBO on a documentary series about the lives of combat photographers, according to The New York Times.

"HBO said on Tuesday that it had ordered a nonfiction series titled ‘Witness’ that will be produced by Mr. Mann and David Frankham, a director of commercials and documentaries, and that will focus on young photojournalists in conflict zones in Mexico, Libya, Uganda and Brazil," the story says.

Mann, who directed the pilot episode of HBO’s “Luck” and serves as an executive producer of that series, said: “David Frankham and I share an admiration for combat photography that captures the universal — and sometimes the indescribable — in a single frame in the midst of chaos and danger.”
