Louis Theroux - Documentary Specials

on BBC

60 minutes

In these first special programmes (2003), Louis Theroux returned to American themes, working at feature-length, this time with a more serious tone than in his earlier Weird Weekends work. For example, Louis and the Brothel takes a sympathetic look at the prostitutes working at a legal brothel in Nevada whereas Under the Knife takes a more critical look at the world of plastic surgery. Other programmes cover a wide variety of topics including law and disorder and Nazis. In March 2006, Louis Theroux signed a deal with the BBC to produce ten films over the course of three years. In February 2009, a new contract came into force which guarantees Louis another ten hour-long documentaries with the BBC. In February 2014 Theroux signed a new deal with the BBC which will see him film three new documentaries based in Los Angeles
