‘THE MOST POWERFUL MAN IN THE WORLD’ – Fareed Zakaria on the Rise, Reign, and Aims of Vladimir Putin

New documentary makes global broadcast premiere Monday, March 13 at 9:00pmET on CNN/U.S. and CNN International

What is the true nature of the relationship between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin – and, what are the implications of their relationship for America and the world? CNN’s Fareed Zakaria searches for answers to these essential questions in ‘The MOST POWERFUL MAN IN THE WORLD.’  The one-hour documentary simulcasts Monday, March 13 at 9:00pm on CNN/U.S. and CNN International, and then replays on CNN/U.S. at 12:00am. Both times Eastern.

Putin is subject to neither a legislature nor a court, and there is little free press in Russia.  Reared in Soviet poverty, Putin served as a KGB officer in East Germany before maneuvering his rapid rise from deputy mayor of St. Petersburg to president of post-Soviet Russia. FULL POST

The new CNN Film, The End: Inside the Last Days of the Obama White House, will premiere in simulcast on CNN/U.S. and CNN International Wednesday, Jan. 18, at 9:00pm.  The two-hour film will encore Thursday, Jan. 19 on CNN/U.S. at 12:00am.  All three premiere telecasts will be presented with limited commercial interruption.  The End: Inside the Last Days of the Obama White House, will encore Sunday, Jan. 22 on CNN/U.S. at 8:00pm Eastern.  All times Eastern.

Filming for The End: Inside the Last Days of the Obama White House began shortly after Election Day 2016, and concluded with President Obama’s farewell address.  The film includes reflections by President Barack Obama on his work and hopes for the nation.

Leading voices in the film include Josh Earnest, White House press secretary; Valerie Jarrett, senior advisor; Cody Keenan, director of speech writing for the White House; Jen Psaki, White House communications director; Angella Reid, chief usher of the White House; and Tina Tchen, assistant to the President and chief of staff for First Lady Michelle Obama.  Each granted exclusive access to key meetings, their work, and their personal thoughts on their final days inside the White House.  The rare interviews capture the nostalgia of the people who have worked closest to the Obamas during their White House tenure.

“This unique epilogue for the Obama Administration captures the President’s views and his staff’s views about what their lives in public service have meant to them as they prepare to leave the White House,” said Amy Entelis, executive vice president of talent and content development.  “This film will serve as a key public record of an historic presidency, as the Obama Administration transitions executive power to the incoming Trump Administration,” Entelis said.

The 2016 presidential election rewrote the rules. It was historic, divisive, confounding and at almost every turn defied prediction. Clinton was the first female presidential nominee determined to shatter the ultimate glass ceiling, winning the popular vote but losing the election. Trump, a billionaire businessman and former reality TV star, promised to fix Washington and won the coveted office.

With two comprehensive one-hour specials, CNN goes behind the scenes for an unmatched look inside the race:

You called, CNN listened: What voicemails reveal about the American voter

What 10,000+ voicemails reveal about the American voter

Devastated. Ecstatic. Afraid. Hopeful.

We asked American voters how they are feeling about the outcome of the election and their new president-elect. You left us more than 1,500 voicemails in four days. We listened.

Here's what you said.

In a project based off the successful Love Story initiative, CNN opened up a voicemail box to hear straight from the American people.

We heard from an Obama turned Trump voter, a registered Republican who voted for Clinton, a Trump voter who feels uneasy about their vote and many, many more.

Explore voicemails verified by CNN Digital, and call in yourself to tell us how you feel. The voicemail box will be open through Inauguration 2017 and we're still listening.

2016 ELECTION RESULTS, PHOTOGRAPHY AND MOVING IMAGES PROJECTED ONTO SOUTH FAÇADE OF NYC’S ICONIC TOWER

CNN, Instagram, and CA Technologies, in an exclusive partnership with the Empire State Building (ESB), are bringing to the New York City skyline a breathtaking display of photography, real-time election results, maps, voter mosaics and animations to commemorate one of the nation’s most significant elections. The projection on New York’s most iconic landmark begins at 8PM ET tonight — November 8, 2016 – and will continue throughout the evening, ultimately calling the race for a new President of the United States of America.   

 The ESB activation, produced by Obscura Digital, is the final stop and grand finale of the #MyVote nationwide tour – a partnership between CNN, Instagram, Facebook and CA Technologies.  

The projections will feature Instagram images uploaded by voters from around the nation using the #MyVote hashtag. #MyVote projections will also be featured at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. and Miracle Mile in Las Vegas. Additionally, as part of the #MyVote tour, the Coit Tower in San Francisco will be lit up in either red or blue lights symbolizing the state’s choice for America’s next president.

Projections on ESB, and other national landmarks, will be featured on CNN and across both CNN and ESB’s digital platforms as part of Election Night in America coverage. To catch a real-life view of this incredible display, visit the Empire State Building tonight where street teams are handing out commemorative frames at Madison Square Park.
