Susannah Ludwig ’93 has new documentary series, Boomtown, on Planet Green
“Boomtown,” a new documentary television series from executive producer Susannah Ludwig ’93, is set to air on Planet Green/Discovery Channel on Saturday January 29 at 10pm.
According to the "Boomtown" website, the series tracks the transformative effect of a small town in economic distress that unexpectedly strikes it big in the oil business. The stories of several residents are told – some of whom strike it rich virtually overnight, and others who are only plagued with more deadly car crashes, noise and pollution to their quaint farming community. The documentary is set in Parshall, N.D. (population: 1,073), and is expected to run for five consecutive Saturdays.
Ludwig took Documentary Research while at Ithaca College and is the co-founder of Flourish Films in Brooklyn.
