There's that new CNN documentary series on the pope.Once considered more medicinal than entertaining and consigned to high-brow places like PBS and art house theaters, documentaries are scattered across the film and TV spectrum, as well as online portals like Facebook Watch or YouTube Red and on video streaming apps like go90 . Even mighty NBC is getting in on the act with a documentary on Martin Luther King Jr. airing Saturday night.Starz, which last fall began offering new documentaries for the first time, has doubled down by adding four original docuseries to its summer schedule, exploring everything from the criminal justice system to the legacy of hip-hop.In 2016, he teamed up with Michael Bonfiglio on "Doc & Darryl" for ESPN's "30 for 30" series and last year's "May It Last: A Portrait of the Avett Brothers" on HBO. This month he's on his own with a four-hour HBO documentary about Garry Shandling.Many thank Sheila Nevins for bringing documentaries into mainstream popular culture during her 38-year tenure at HBO.
