The legendary documentary maker is back with his latest project Forbidden America. Louis Theroux looks like he’s gone back to his roots with this new project, which echoes his iconic Weird Weekends series.
The new three-part series starts tonight and will see Theroux investigate the changes across America that have taken place across the US since it first aired in the 1990s.
He will revisit the porn world, as well as far-right influencers on the internet and the world of gangster rap. Now 51-year-old, he reunites with some of the adult stars that featured in his 1998 documentary, Weird Weekends: Porn.
The first part of the series sees Theroux return to the US to explore the impact of the internet and social media on some of the most controversial corners of American society.
Theroux will meet up with the new influencers of the far-right who promote an ideology that is defiantly racist, misogynistic, homophobic and anti-Semitic, often packaging the most extreme views as `irony”.
Louis attempts to understand their recent surge in popularity and challenges the divisive rhetoric that is being streamed to millions of young viewers online.
If you’d like to catch his new series, tune in to BBC Two from 9pm to 10pm to enjoy his latest instalment. Visit BBC website here for more information.
