Plot Synopsis

THE WEEKLY is a half-hour documentary series that brings journalism to the small screen. Each 30-minute episode features a "New York Times" journalist investigating one of the most pressing issues of the day. With more than 1,550 journalists scattered across 160 countries, "The Times" produces 2,500 stories a week -- investigative reports, political scoops, cultural dispatches, and more. Each episode tells one of these stories.

In the series opener, "The Education of T.M. Landry," a tiny school in rural Louisiana attracted national attention for sending students to the Ivy League. But a New York Times investigation shows that the viral success stories were full of deception, and that the truth was much darker. Correspondents: Erica Green and Katie Benner.

Subsequent episodes include:

"The Myth of the Medallion": New York City taxi drivers have been pushed to bankruptcy, foreclosure -- even suicide. A yearlong investigation into the collapse of the taxi medallion industry reveals how the system was rigged against the drivers, and who profited from it. Correspondents: Brian Rosenthal and Emma Graves Fitzsimmons.

"Baby Constantin": The separation of children from their families at the border remains among the most controversial practices of the Trump administration. The Weekly uncovers the untold story of Baby Constantin, who spent most of his first 10 months of life separated from his parents by the American government. Correspondent: Caitlin Dickerson.

"Collision": An idealistic American couple bicycling around the world. A group of young men radicalized by ISIS. The Weekly investigates how these lives tragically intersected on a remote mountain pass. Correspondent: Rukmini Callimachi.

"Inauguration, Inc.": With exclusive documents, photos, interviews and found footage, The Weekly and The New York Times's Washington reporters piece together an anatomy of President Trump's inauguration, the most expensive inaugural weekend the country has ever seen. Reporters: Mark Mazzetti, Matthew Rosenberg, Maggie Haberman, Sharon LaFraniere, Ken Vogel.
