DIANE SAWYER CHRONICLES A NEW REALITY OF MILLIONS OF AMERICANS WORKING HARDER THAN EVER BUT STRUGGLING TO STAY IN THE MIDDLE CLASS
For More Than a Year Sawyer and Team Traveled Coast to Coast to Explore Issues of Opportunity, Income Inequality, Striving American Workers and Community Solutions in America
‘My Reality: A Hidden America’ Will Air on a Special Edition of ‘20/20,’ Friday, January 13
Millions of Americans are working harder than ever, but feel they are falling further behind. For so many the American Dream’s opportunities seem to have changed since the days when they were growing up. A year and a half ago ABC News Anchor Diane Sawyer and team connected on social media with thousands of working Americans from across the country to hear their stories and received video diaries on the reality of their lives. The team set out across the nation to bring these stories into focus – a startling portrait of struggle, frustration and anxiety that explores what it means to be the first generation of middle-class Americans in half a century who are more likely than not to earn less than their parents. A series of raw and revealing reports uncovers how close to the edge so many Americans live. More than eight million Americans work multiple jobs. Almost half of Americans would be unable to cover their weekly expenses if hit by an emergency costing $400. ABC News finds a man working full time, but sleeping in a storage unit in the same apartment building where he once lived; a man selling his blood plasma to buy a birthday present for his child; and young children sleeping overnight at daycares while their parents work a night shift. In America where workers put in more hours than others in most countries in the western world, there are parallel realities: people who earn huge bonuses and get free food at work while others near them keep their jobs by sleeping in cars in the parking lot. For more than a year, ABC News followed dramatic, riveting and unexpected turns in the daily lives of middle class Americans struggling to live the life they once knew growing up. The team traveled coast to coast to more than a dozen cities documenting reality in the lives of firefighters and fast food workers, Silicon Valley employees and college professors – and reporting on their hopes and hardships.
What does it take to stay in the middle class today? Viewers can compare their lives to the surprising statistics to what now actually defines middle class. After a tumultuous election and with a new president with new promises – what will change? ABC News will follow these people during and through this transition. Sawyer and the team also report on solutions to this crisis proposed by American workers, and the stunning difference some companies have made when their leaders reach out to create change. “My Reality: A Hidden America” airs on a special edition of “20/20” Friday, January 13 (10:01-11:00 p.m. EST), on ABC.

- NEW SMITHSONIAN CHANNEL(TM) SERIES TAKES VIEWERS
BEHIND THE SCENES OF ADVERTISING'S FORMATIVE YEARS IN "THE
REAL MAD MEN OF ADVERTISING" PREMIERING SUNDAY, JANUARY 8TH
AT 9 PM
SERIES FEATURES INTERVIEWS WITH MAD MEN CREATOR MATTHEW
WEINER AND ACTRESS AND MODEL BROOKE SHIELDS
Smithsonian Channel four-part series provides an inside look
into the men and women who re-invented the advertising
industry from post-WWII America through the 1980s. Driven by
memorable, classic ad campaigns, many of which are in the
collections of the Smithsonian--s National Museum of
American History, the series also features clips and
interviews with the creators of the groundbreaking series
Mad Men. THE REAL MAD MEN OF ADVERTISING premieres Sunday,
January 8th at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
In 2015, the National Museum
of American History accepted a donation of artifacts,
costumes and props from the series Mad Men against the
backdrop of actual advertising history as displayed in its
exhibition, American Enterprise. THE REAL MAD MEN OF
ADVERTISING uses these museum objects to explore the
fascinating commercials and ad campaigns of mid-century
America. Ads from Howdy Doody to MTV reveal the impact of
commercial culture, while clips and interviews with Mad Men
cast and crew members offer a glimpse into the meticulously
constructed world of the iconic series. Their stories are
set alongside interviews with the real ad men and women of
the 1950s through the 1980s -- from the top ad creators of
the 1950s to Brooke Shields, who as a teen model was the
centerpiece of a controversial early 1980s Calvin Klein ad
THE REAL MAD MEN OF ADVERTISING: THE 1950s
Premieres Sunday, January 8th at 9 p.m. ET/PT In a post-war
world, advertisers tantalized consumers with visions of
futuristic homes and cars, shiny jewelry, and the newest
home appliances. Advertising harnessed buying power that
created an unprecedented consumer boom. Advertisers
discovered an entirely new, fast-growing market -- children
-- and began to market directly to them on shows like Howdy
Doody. The decade saw the proliferation of the most powerful
selling machine of all: television. What was previously
shown in print advertisements and heard on radio ads was now
seen and heard through the new and exciting medium of
television - piped directly into living rooms. From
--doctors-- hawking cigarettes, to the newest fins on
Cadillacs, to --Does She Or Doesn--t She-- -- the ad men and
women of the Fifties were re-inventing culture.
