According to a press release, the program will be “a collection of unique and immersive single subject, one-hour episodes.”

The network also revealed the subjects of the first several episodes. The first episode is titled “What Happened to San Francisco?” followed by “Shaken: Baby Powder on Trial,” “Magic Mushrooms,” “Charles & Camilla,” and “A Migrant’s Journey.”

Cooper already hosts Anderson Cooper 360° for CNN, which airs on weeknights at 8 p.m. With the new gig, Cooper will host programs on the network six out of seven nights a week, only taking a break on Saturdays. Anderson Cooper 360° first aired in 2003.

Since 2006, Cooper has also contributed to reports on CBS News’s 60 Minutes, which airs at 7 p.m. on Sundays. He has been able to do so through an agreement between the two networks. According to CBS News’s website, the 2022-2023 season of the program is his 17th.
