PBS plans ‘Follow’ on pols’ money

NEW YORK — Both houses of Congress will be holding what could become sensational hearings this summer into alleged campaign finance violations by the Democratic and Republican parties, so PBS has created “Follow the Money,” a 24-part weekly primetime series to kick off nationally Friday.

Co-hosts for the series are Gail Harris, a former correspondent for ABC News, and Ray Suarez, who covers money and politics for National Public Radio. The series will focus on the congressional hearings and on proposals to reform the system, which forces officials at all levels of government to raise large sums of money to compete in elections.

The executive producer of “Follow the Money” is Andrew Walworth for New River Media, which also produces the weekly PBS series “Think Tank With Ben Wattenberg.” Walworth will tape “Money” at the Freedom Forum’s Newseum, a $50 million structure in Washington devoted to news.
