CNN today announced plans to launch a new one-hour prime-time program focusing on political commentator Van Jones.
“The Van Jones Show” is scheduled to launch in January.
“Jones will return to CNN with his unique take on the forces that elected Donald Trump, the anti-Trump ‘resistance’ movement and the future of both major parties,” CNN said in today’s announcement. “The show will build on Jones’ successful town halls throughout 2017, ‘The Messy Truth,’ and will continue to speak directly to voters across the country by exploring the raw, emotional policy debates and culture wars taking place in America.”
CNN also announced that it has greenlighted a new CNN Original Series in collaboration with the production company Citizen Jones, to be hosted by Van Jones. “The series focuses on reconciliation, hope and redemption within the criminal justice system,” CNN said.
