Posted by at 12:12 pm on January 11, 2018

Casey Bloys,  president, HBO programming, announced today that HBO has signed investigative journalist Ronan Farrow to an exclusive three-year television deal.

Ronan Farrow was previously an anchor and investigative reporter at MSNBC and NBC News, where his Today Show investigative series, Undercovered with Ronan Farrow, received the 2017 CINE Golden Eagle Award for Best Series for its look at inadequacies in mental health care on college campuses.

Farrow graduated from Bard College at age 15, who also is a Yale Law School-educated attorney and a member of the New York Bar, and attended Oxford University as a Rhodes Scholar. He has served as a State Department official in Afghanistan, Pakistan, the Middle East and North Africa

His latest claim to fame is his role in helping bring down Harvey Weinstein over  sexual assault and harassment claims.  The THR has a great story on this here.

Farrow will develop and be the face of a series of investigative documentary specials for the network.

His stories will continue to document the abuse of power by individuals and institutions, and will occur in tandem with his ongoing contributing writer role for the New Yorker

“Ronan Farrow’s extraordinary, revelatory reporting for the New Yorker has helped to propel a string of other investigations, breakthroughs and overdue conversations,” noted Bloys. “His work has contributed to this watershed moment in our culture, and we are excited to provide a platform for this dogged reporter to pursue projects that continue to speak truth to power.”

Farrow added:

“Over the course of my television and print investigations in recent years, it’s become clear to me that there’s a new generation of viewers seeking out serious, substantive reporting that takes on powerful interests and attacks systemic unfairness that too often is swept under the rug. There’s an extraordinary team at HBO committed to that kind of journalism, I know HBO is the right home for this work, and I can’t wait to get started.”

He also work other projects for HBO’s various platforms, which will be announced at a later date.
