Tuesday, September 10th at 10pm, WGVU Public Television will air FRONTLINE: Flint’s Deadly Water exposing the unreported, true toll of the Flint water crisis — and how government officials failed to stop it.

WGVU spoke with directed and filmmaker Abby Ellis, the documentary is based on two years of reporting on the ground in Flint, Michigan. Ellis and her team document an outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease stemming from the water crisis that continues to claim lives in the city, five years later. The investigation shows how people were getting sick and dying from the severe form of pneumonia caused by waterborne bacteria for more than a year before the public was notified.
