FUSION will debut its fresh series, Real America with Jorge Ramos, on 21 November in the US.

PR 13 nov 2017Award-winning journalist Jorge Ramos will ask provocative questions of the disrupters, dreamers and dynamic-thinking Americans who are on the cutting edge and making a difference in this uncertain time.

“Jorge is the quintessential American — a proud, hard-working immigrant for whom the promise of America is tangible,” said FUSION president Daniel Eilemberg. “His curiosity is infectious and this series, like all his projects for FUSION, will further elevate the voices that are writing the next chapter of our nation’s history.”

In the premiere instalment, Ramos travels to Puerto Rico to measure the impact of the disaster. He explores what life is really like in Puerto Rico weeks after Hurricane Maria, and asks why it has taken so long for these US citizens to get much needed aid and electricity. He interviews those struggling to live without basic resources, along with the mayor of San Juan Carmen Yulin Cruz — who has challenged President Trump on response efforts — the Governor Ricardo Rosello, and others who are providing aid, including former New York Yankee and Puerto Rico native Jorge Posada and his wife Laura.

Upcoming episodes will feature revealing profiles of actor and comedian John Leguizamo, Governor John Kasich (R-OH), artists and activists Ai Weiwei and JR, and world-renowned brain surgeon Dr. Alfredo Quinones-Hinojosa, among others.
