About Us

True stories about how power works in urban America. We investigate people in power, the consequences their actions have for a city’s most vulnerable residents, and what a power struggle in one city reveals about the challenges facing all cities.

Latest Episodes

Trailer: Chicago | S1

EThe City tells true stories of how power works in urban America. Season 1 begins in Chicago, 1990. After years of disinvestment, highways are rebuilt, old buildings demolished, new skyscrapers erected. All that rubble has to go somewhere, and its destination isn’t a landfill—it’s a pair of vacant lots in a black, working-class neighborhood called North Lawndale. The man behind this operation is a white guy sporting a Cosby sweater and underworld connections. What follows is a tour de force through Chicago’s underbelly: Aldermen get indicted. An FBI investigation goes awry. A community’s resilience is tested—all unfolding under the spectre of racism in America.
