A&E to air 'Generation KKK' docuseries exposing Ku Klux Klan

NEW YORK (AP) — A&E network is set to air a documentary series focused on the Ku Klux Klan.

Announced Monday, "Generation KKK" aims to expose the missions of this racist, anti-Semitic organization and show its impact on American families as Klan members grapple with the consequences of breaking free.

Throughout eight one-hour episodes, the series follows four families including an "Imperial Wizard" who hopes to groom his teenage daughter to take his place, and a fifth-generation Klan family struggling to keep up the legacy.

The series promises to take viewers inside the places where hatred and prejudice are born and bred. It will also follow a group of anti-hate and peace activists working to break the cycle by helping convince members to leave the hate group.

"Generation KKK" premieres Jan. 10.
