An NBC News correspondent is launching a new monthly iPad documentary series, which premieres this week, B&C reports.
Starting Feb. 8, NBC News foreign correspondent Richard Engel will host "Hidden Planet," marking the first time that NBC has launched a series on an iPad app. It will be available through the "Rock Center with Brian Williams" app.
Engel will be expanding beyond his Mideast war stories, his usual beat, to explore unusual places around the world. He’s scheduled to go to the lost city of Timbuktu and the tunnels beneath Saqqara Pyramids.
Episodes of "Hidden Planet" will be exclusive on the iPad for a week, then available online at RockCenterNBC.com.
