The New York Times Presents‘ latest film, Move Fast & Vape Things, an investigation into the e-cigarette company Juul, will premiere Friday, September 17 @ 10PM ET/PT on FX and Hulu simultaneously.

In Move Fast & Vape Things, the eighth film from The New York Times Presents, two Stanford graduate students had an inspired idea and an idealistic mission: create an e-cigarette that would help millions of people stop smoking. How did the founders of Juul lose their way and end up accused of addicting a whole new generation?

The film, directed by John Pappas, features exclusive interviews with several insiders, including the creative director of Juul’s advertising campaign that is now the centerpiece of hundreds of lawsuits against the company. The film also explores the F.D.A.’s response and features former commissioner Scott Gottlieb speaking for the first time about his experience – and regrets. And it features a never-before-seen source who resigned from a public health journal over a special pro-vaping issue paid for by Juul.

The New York Times Presents features a series of standalone documentary films powered by the unparalleled journalism and insight of journalists at The New York Times, bringing viewers close to the essential stories of our time.

Framing Britney Spears received Emmy(R) Award nominations for Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Special and Outstanding Picture Editing for a Nonfiction Program, as well as a TCA Award nomination for Outstanding Achievement in News and Information. The film continues to generate intense interest, public debate and to capture the pop culture zeitgeist. The New York Times Presents also won the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding News/Information (Series or Special) for “The Killing of Breonna Taylor.”

The New York Times Presents hails from the same team responsible for the FX and Hulu docuseries The Weekly, which won four News & Documentary Emmy Awards, an Overseas Press Club award, and its reporting on how a predatory lending scheme had corrupted the taxi industry in New York and elsewhere was part of a body of work that was awarded the Pulitzer Prize.

The New York Times Presents is produced by The New York Times and Left/Right, a Red Arrow Studios company. Executive producers are Ken Druckerman, Banks Tarver, Mary Robertson, Jason Stallman, Sam Dolnick, and Stephanie Preiss.

With more than 1,700 journalists who have reported from over 160 countries since 2019, The Times publishes about 150 pieces of journalism each day, including exclusive reporting on topics ranging from politics to culture to climate to sports to business. The New York Times Presents will continue to tell those stories in a visual and unforgettable way.
