Deadline, a documentary that chronicles the conversion of Gov. George Ryan from "pro-death-penalty Republican to a firm opponent of the death penalty," will air on Dateline NBC tomorrow night in an unusual move for a broadcast network.
Ryan is the guy that commuted the death sentences of 167 people and freed four others last year.
David Corvo, exec director of Dateline: "This is not a journalistic report. It's more personal. It's their style. It speaks with a more personal voice, not a collective voice."
Congrats to directors Katy Chevigny and Kirsten Johnson!
