New Documentary Miniseries Captures Chicago
Sarah Goodyear writes an early review of the miniseries Chicagoland, which follows high profile city leaders like Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Police Superintendent Garrt McCarthy, in addition to lower profile leaders like Elizabeth Dozier and Asean Johnson.
“The real star of Chicagoland, though, is the city itself, in all its broad-shouldered, brawling, chest-thumping glory and pain,” writes Goodyear.
The show sounds like great viewing for those enraptured by the personal moments in cities, capturing “…countless moments of true emotion and revealing action. On an Englewood street corner, we witness the fear that Chicago kids feel about having to walk through hostile gang territory if their local schools are closed.”
