Spanish-language cable network, Fusion, is premiering a new five-episode series, Real America, starring Univision Noticias anchor Jorge Ramos, on Tuesday, Nov. 21, at 10 p.m.
“Jorge is the quintessential American—a proud, hardworking immigrant for whom the promise of America is tangible. 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,” said Fusion President Daniel Eilemberg in a statement.
In the series’ first installment, Ramos travels to Puerto Rico to explore the extent of the damage caused by Hurricane Maria and see what the current status of the island is, which has been left without clean water, air and electricity in the weeks following the storm.
