CNN announced that its original series that won the Primetime Emmy last year for Outstanding Unstructured Reality Program will return next month. Season three of “United Shades of America with W. Kamau Bell” will premiere Sunday, April 29.
The premiere episode will lead out from the super-sized season 11 premiere of “Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown.”
“In season three, Bell heads to the border, visits the coast of South Carolina to meet the Gullah Geechee people, travels to Hawaii to talk to natives, heads up north to Canada, meets with students at Historical Black Colleges and Universities, explores Sikhism in America, talks to members of the disabled community, and visits his dad in Mobile, Alabama, to retrace his family roots,” CNN said in today’s announcement.
In the season premiere, “The Border,” Kamau travels to the U.S./Mexico border to find out what life is like for people living in the area and talk about the proposed new wall.
