Plot Synopsis

Produced by Peter Berg and war correspondent Michael Ware, UNCENSORED WITH MICHAEL WARE is an eight-episode series that follows Ware, as he embarks on a new adventure to investigate some of the most fascinating people, places and cultures on the planet. Ware brings his style of gritty, unapologetic journalism to some of the world's buzziest areas, ranging from the rough and savage highlands of Papua New Guinea -- where women who are thought to be witches are hunted and killed -- to the glamorous streets of Los Angeles where celebrities are sought out and snapped by paparazzi. For Ware, some locations and stories are close to home, like investigating the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq (aka MEK), an Iranian dissident group that he met during the Iraq War. Ware is on a mission to find out how this group -- considered to be freedom fighters by some and terrorists by others -- is making an impact today. Other stories push Ware far outside his comfort zone, like rubbing elbows with celebrities and the sartorial elite during New York City's infamous Fashion Week where Ware searches for meaning among the runways and flashing lights. Along the way, Ware stays true to his journalistic roots, employing his run-and-gun approach to storytelling, where he covers the story from every angle, collecting facts and leads any way he can. Everyone is a source. Rather than straight-to-camera talking-head interviews, Ware digs deeper into his subjects' stories by interacting with them, asking questions and discussing and dissecting their answers. Viewers become witnesses, involved with the subjects Ware comes across as they ride shotgun with him and his small, relentless crew; from the moment they touch down to the moment they find their truth, cameras are always rolling -- often Ware's own wobbly handheld.
On Wednesday, March 15, 2017 at 11pm ET/PT, Nat Geo premiered the season finale of UNCENSORED WITH MICHAEL WARE. In the season ender, "Paparazzi!," Ware embeds himself with paparazzi in Los Angeles to find out what it takes to get the money shot.
