Amazon’s new series The New Yorker Presents brings the stories and voice of the venerable magazine to a streaming series format–creating something entirely new in the process.
“This isn’t just a re-creation of magazine articles as they are. That’s really important,” showrunner Kahane Cooperman tells CNET. “It’s actually an opportunity to sort of reinvent the news magazine format, and we take these articles from this incredible magazine and that’s our starting point for every piece. But then we let the filmmakers take it from there.”
