HBO is getting "Witness," a new documentary series that follows young combat photojournalists as they document conflicts in Mexico, Libya, Uganda and Brazil.
Deadline reports that the network will be produced by directors Michael Mann and David Frankham. Mann, who was also behind the HBO drama "Luck," discussed the collaboration in a statement. "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," he wrote.
HBO also said that "Witness" strives to show viewers "why, when everyone else seeks cover, the war photographer stands."
The first episode was filmed in Juarez, Mexico, and three additional episodes of the series are in production.
