NEW YORK, Nov. 1 (UPI) -- Court TV and the American Civil Liberties Union are presenting a series exploring issues that could threaten civil liberties in the United States.

"The ACLU Freedom Files" is a 10-part series created by Robert Greenwald's Brave New Films and directed and produced by Jeremy Kagan, The Hollywood Reporter said Tuesday.

The series premiering in January will feature real clients and their attorneys as well as actors, activists and comedians.

Margaret Cho, Wendie Malick and Harry Shearer are a few of the big names scheduled to appear in the show, which will fall into the noon Saturday slot on Court TV.

Among the topics to be explored are religious freedom, the Patriot Act, free speech and dissent, gay and lesbian rights and racial profiling.

The show, which already premiered on Link TV, will air on the college network Zilo TV as well.
