CNN will premiere “Blackfish,” the story of a performing Orca connected to the deaths of several people in capitivy, on Thursday night at 9pmET. The network acquired the U.S. rights to “Blackfish” at Sundance earlier this year.
CNN has also announced the premiere of “Pandora’s Promise,” which features several environmental experts who have evolved from being strongly against to strongly in favor of nuclear energy. That film will premiere on November 7 at 9pmET.
“Both of these special films represent exactly the type of engaging, thought-provoking content that is the mission of CNN Films,” CNN Worldwide president Jeff Zucker said. “Through our acquisitions and commissions of exceptional factual content, we aim to encourage dialogue on the issues raised in the films with our filmmakers, experts, and other stakeholders via our robust television, digital and social platforms.”
