One To Watch For Future: NEW Louis Theroux documentaries, BBC 2 later this year
Louis Theroux is back with three brand spanking new documentaries! There have been a lot of rumours that the docs would explore the rise of Donald Trump but that is not the case, here are what the three will explore:
- Murder in Milwaukee, Theroux spends time in one of the most impoverished cities in the US during a period of heightened tensions between police and the African-American community, following two police shootings.
- Sex Trafficking Houston takes a look at what is regarded as one of the largest hubs for human trafficking in North America. Theroux interviews women working in the city’s sex industry, exploring the relationships between pimp and prostitute.
- Opiate City, investigates the world of prescription painkillers and how the country’s crackdown on oversubscription has led to a population dependent on opiates, particularly heroin.
