Using never-before-seen video, and exclusive accounts from eyewitnesses, The Weekly investigates how the Sinaloa Drug Cartel took on the Mexican army, and won. Reporters: Azam Ahmed, Paulina Villegas, Haley Willis and Ainara Tiefenthäler; Producer/Director: Andréa Schmidt.

The Weekly is a narrative documentary news program that follows the stories behind The New York Times’ headlines. Viewers will see reporters from The Times chasing their stories, watch as they conduct their interviews, and generally have the sense of being along for the ride. The whole idea for this show is that the layers that separate viewers from The Times journalism will be eliminated.
