CNN is ready to show us all Escape Fire: The Fight To Rescue American Healthcare, because they just snagged the TV rights to the two-hour documentary!
Shown at 2012's Sundance Film Festival, it takes a look at the flaws and failings of the nation's healthcare system. It sounds pretty important, because it's all political and healthcare-y and stuff, so you should probably set your calendars (or DVRs) for March 10th at 8pm! LOLz!
Here's what the president, Jeff Zucker, had to say:
“CNN Films is very pleased to bring this documentary to television. The physical health of our nation and the cost of healthcare, impact every current fiscal challenge we face. This compelling film gives us an explanation of some of the factors that have contributed to our broken system and explains why we urgently need to fix it."
Urgent sounds important to us — we're glad they're not waiting to air it — and March 10th isn't far away!
Something needs to be done, and hopefully this doc will help a solution along!
