House of Cards actor Kevin Spacey will narrate a CNN special series to air in 2016 about presidential candidates.
Frank Pallotta of CNNMoney reports:
“When we created the CNN Original Series brand, this is exactly the type of programming we had in mind,” Jeff Zucker, the president of CNN Worldwide, said in a statement.
“‘Race for the White House’ will be the perfect complement to our coverage of the 2016 campaigns and election,” he said.
Programs like “Race for the White House” are a big part of Zucker’s effort to draw new viewers to the news channel.
Through Spacey’s production company, “House of Cards” producer Dana Brunetti will also be an executive producer of the CNN series.
