New Orleans has always served as one of America’s most culturally and historically rich cities. After the tragedies of Hurricane Katrina, there was no real concerted effort to track and document the progress, rebuilding and politics of the Louisiana city. As we approach the 10th anniversary of the natural disaster, however, Rampante’s documentary series “New Orleans, Here and Now” will serve as a major contributor to this narrative.

The docu-series is directed by John Maringouin. Darius Clark Monroe, Angela Tucker, Lily Keber, Zach Godshall and Katie Dellamaggiore. Christine Vachon, Patricia Clarkson, Scott Bakula and Pamela Koffler all serve as executive producers. The series will launch in August, marking the first release from the partnership between Time Inc. and Rampante.

“Rampante’s first series is a reflection of our commitment to collaborating with companies that share our vision for bringing great stories to audiences via multiple platforms. We could not have asked for better partners than Time Inc., Killer Films and Field Office Films for this project,” said Emiliano Calemzuk, founder and CEO of Rampante.

New Orleans-born Academy Award-nominated actress and executive producer Patricia Clarkson added,”“New Orleans will always have a special place in my heart and I am so proud of the remarkable stories shared in ‘New Orleans, Here & Now.’ They reveal a very different perspective on a city that people think they know, but really don’t.”
