Today we’re thrilled to announce that the new Vox Entertainment-produced CNN Original Series, American Style, will make its debut on Sunday, Jan. 13, with back-to-back episodes at 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. ET/PT. The four-part docuseries produced by Vox Entertainment in collaboration with Doc Shop Productions, examines how America’s changing style through the decades has mirrored the political, social, and economic climate of the time.
“We are excited to see our partnership with CNN come to life with this historical anthology docu-series premiering on the premium cable network in January,” said Chad Mumm, VP, Head of Vox Entertainment at Vox Media. “We’ll continue to satisfy our viewers’ deep curiosity and demand for high-quality storytelling as we bring our digital audience along to our longform TV endeavors.”

Using archival footage and interviews with fashion experts and cultural figures including Tim Gunn, Donna Karan, Carson Kressley, Vanessa Williams, Beverly Johnson, Isaac Mizrahi, Christie Brinkley, John Varvatos, Diane von Furstenberg, André Leon Talley and more, the series highlights the most iconic moments from fashion and pop culture, giving audiences a front row seat to the runway of American history.
The premiere episode explores style in the 1940s and 50s, how World War II and Hollywood helped create America’s own fashion identity, and the introduction of new trends including the bikini and zoot suit. The second episode explores the style of the ‘60s and ‘70s as the youth culture comes into its own, and fashion, like politics, goes to extremes. The remaining two episodes, airing Sunday, Jan. 20, at 9 and 10 p.m. ET/PT, examine the history and style of the 1980s and 1990s to 2000s.
American Style will stream live for subscribers on Jan. 13 and Jan. 20 via CNNgo (at CNN.com/go and via CNNgo apps for Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire, Chromecast, Samsung Smart TV and Android TV) and on the CNN mobile apps for iOS and Android.
