Death Row Stories

CNN is by and large still a cable news outlet, but a movement under the leadership of network president Jeff Zucker to provide more alternative, entertainment-based programming is clearly afoot, and "Death Row Stories" is a prime example. The documentary -- the result of a collaboration with Academy Award-winning directors Robert Redford ("Ordinary People") and Alex Gibney ("Taxi to the Dark Side") -- revisits compelling capital murder cases in the U.S., detailing the twists and turns involved in each as a thought-provoking exercise on the death penalty and the American justice system. Redford's Sundance Productions also partnered with CNN for the documentary series "Chicagoland."
