"The New Yorker Presents" (TV show) is a reality series on Amazon that brings to life America's most award-winning magazine, which marks its 90th anniversary in 2015.

The series is a completely unique viewing experience. The pilot episode featured Tony-Award winner Alan Cumming ("The Good Wife") and actor Brett Gelman ("Go On") in a short film based on a story by Simon Rich ("Saturday Night Live") and directed by Emmy Award-winning director Troy Miller ("Arrested Development"); a poem by Matthew Dickman; a documentary by Academy Award-winning director Jonathan Demme ("The Silence of the Lambs") about biologist Tyrone Hayes based on a Rachel Aviv article; and an interview with famous performance artist, Marina Abramovic, conducted by The New Yorker writer Ariel Levy.

Future episodes will include new segments that come from noted filmmakers, star talent and New Yorker writers.

"The New Yorker Presents" is co-produced by Condé Nast Entertainment and Jigsaw Productions. Academy Award-winning documentarian Alex Gibney ("Taxi to the Dark Side") is executive producer, joined by Dave Snyder ("Death Row Stories") and Dawn Ostroff ("The Fashion Fund").
