MSNBC has nabbed the rights for Trevor Noah’s upcoming documentary series The Tipping Point, with plans to air it on its linear news channel and Peacock this fall.
The Tipping Point is produced by Time Studios, Noah’s Day Zero, Sugar23, and P&G Studios. The series brings together a number of independent films about tipping points that created significant changes in the world. Big names in Hollywood have slipped into the project as directors and executive producers such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Angelina Jolie and Kat Graham.
Topics fetured in the upcoming series include: How is the growing American political divide, fueled by partisan television and disinformation – threatening to upend our time-honored democracy? How is voting legislation currently being introduced in states nationwide threatening to disenfranchise millions of voters? How have the growing number of internally displaced people, partnered with burgeoning anti-immigrant sentiments, created a condition of crisis around the globe?
