Katie Couric on Her ‘Prescient’ New Docuseries ‘America Inside Out,’ Political Correctness and #MeToo


With her new six-part NatGeo docuseries “America Inside Out,” Katie Couric tackles head-on some of the issues that have been making headlines around the country — from the march in Charlottesville to anti-Muslim sentiment to the #MeToo movement that is spurring sweeping change across workplaces.

“It’s been a tremendous amount of work but really gratifying to get out of my bubble and travel around the country, to talk to people and encourage conversation rather than an instantaneous reaction,” she tells Variety. “To be able to examine these issues deeply is a real privilege.”
