New York Times TV series to feature GM Lordstown

Posted: Updated:
LORDSTOWN, Ohio -

After GM Lordstown's idling, a New York Times series called The Weekly announced its episode focusing on the plant would air Sunday night.

The episode called "The End of the Line" features interviews with workers before their last shift at the plant as well as a sit-down interview with GM's CEO Mary Barra, who says she's trying to save the car company, according to the episode's description.

You can watch it on FX at 10 p.m. on July 7, or it will be available on Monday on Hulu. 

The entire episode description can be read below.

With its focus on a future of self-driving cars and renewable fuels, General Motors is leaving some manufacturing plants like the one in Lordstown, Ohio, in its rearview. Workers who spent a lifetime at the plant — and constructed their lives around G.M. as they built the company’s cars — are losing their jobs. But this round of layoffs is different from the decades-old shifts in the auto industry. Competition from Silicon Valley, pressure from Wall Street and fundamental changes in how we get around are forcing the company to transform itself. It may be easy to say it’s not fair, but the American economy may not have room for fairness anymore.

“The Weekly” visits Lordstown to talk to some workers before their last shift, and our correspondent sits down with G.M.’s chief executive, Mary Barra, who says she’s trying to save the car company.
