A new series premiering next month on CNN finds network mainstay Christiane Amanpour poking around people’s sex lives around the world. The network announced today that “Christiane Amanpour: Sex & Love Around the World” will premiere Saturday, March 17.
Amanpour reportedly traveled to Asia, Africa, Europe and the Middle East for the six-part series, talking with everyday individuals who are shaping the idea of modern love. “Whether single and dating in Accra, married and sexless in Tokyo, inspired by ancient erotica in Beirut, or transgender in Shanghai — women and men are all pushing the boundaries on sexual satisfaction, consent, and connection,” CNN notes in its announcement.
The project is executive produced by Anthony Bourdain.
“I’ve long been an admirer of Christiane’s brilliant work as a journalist, and was thrilled to have the opportunity to work with her on this project,” Bourdain said. “Between Christiane’s deep and broad experience as an incisive, experienced and empathetic reporter, who has worked all over the world, her genuine passion for this project and Zero Point Zero’s proven ability to execute just this type of global content, ‘Sex and Love Around the World’ represents some of the best of what CNN Original Series can do.”
