Michael Mann to chronicle war photographers for new HBO series
Filmmaker Michael Mann and documentary director David Frankham are teaming up for a new documentary series for HBO that will follow young combat photographers into war zones in Mexico, Brazil, Uganda and Libya.
The series, which will be called "Witness," is currently in production. The first episode was shot in Juarez, Mexico. No air date was announced.
"David Frankham and I share an admiration for combat photography that captures the universal -- and sometimes the indescribable -- in a single frame in the midst of chaos and danger," said Mann, an executive producer and director of HBO's "Luck."
