SPECIALS

Fusion announced Tuesday a new, original, one-hour doc that follows actor/comedian Baron Vaughn (“Grace & Frankie”) as he searches for his unknown father. “Fatherless,” premiering April 2 at 9/8c, demonstrates Vaughn’s desire to be more than a statistic and instead search for the man whose absence required Vaughn to formulate his own construct of the black male identity. The Fusion original is produced by Big Beach TV, directed by Dawn Porter and executive produced by Baron Vaughn, Dawn Porter, and Bryan Carmel.

Fox News Channel announced their own Jesse Watters will sit down for an interview with President Donald Trump for the March 18 edition of “Watters’ World.” The interview will be conducted before Trump’s March 15 rally in Nashville, Tenn. and will feature discussions on the economy, tax reform, immigration, healthcare, and replacing the Affordable Care Act, among other topics. The episode will air at 8/7c.
