Share Article

This segment will look into recent trends, and the efforts to stop them.

A new must-watch segment of "Front Page," hosted by the legendary actor James Earl Jones, takes a hard look at the rapidly increasing rate of drug overdoses in America. A group of experts will discuss the root causes and developments in different drugs, their treatments, and social attitudes towards addiction to see how this affects the rate of overdoses. This short-form documentary will also shed some light on the struggles of addicts and those who treat them.

There are multiple reasons behind the recent proliferation of overdoses. Many point to the increasing potency of drugs such as heroin and cocaine as a contributing factor. Still others note that prescription narcotics are more widespread than ever before. Many prescription pain medications are very powerful, and well-known for causing overdoses. They are also increasing in popularity at a rapid rate, despite stricter legislation on its prescription and usage.

Front Page is made specifically for public television and distributed to many television stations throughout the U.S. The show features very high production values, with every episode filmed in HD and painstakingly edited for quality. In addition to widely-respected James Earl Jones (Star Wars) serving as the host of the program, the writers, producers, and other crew members are experienced with producing this sort of program. Front Page is not affiliated with PBS or APT.
