PBS’s Tuesday-night documentary series FRONTLINE deals with a variety of complex, sobering issues. On May 28, FRONTLINE presents “Sex Trafficking in America.”
As FRONTLINE executive producer Raney Aronson Rath describes it, “Sex Trafficking in America” explores “a hidden epidemic. It’s happening across the country in every state, at alarming rates. And children and teenagers who are online are increasingly at risk. Our team has spent almost three years embedded with an undercover police unit in Phoenix, Arizona, that is trying to tackle this dangerous issue.”
The “Sex Trafficking in America” investigative team is headed up by the award-winning duo director Jezza Neumann and producer Lauren Mucciolo, who together spoke with ASSIGNMENT X.
