ABC News to Launch New ‘Made in America’ Series

Diane Sawyer and crew ask whether it’s even practical to buy American anymore

ABC World News is tossing its hat into the global-trade debate with "Made in America."

The new series will focus on American manufacturing.

The week-long series, launching Feb. 28, will highlight the trade disparity through real-world examples, exploring the difficulty of buying American in an increasingly global marketplace. ABC World News weekend anchor David Muir and ABC's Sharyn Alfonsi challenge a Dallas family to furnish three rooms of their home using only American-made products. The resultant footage chronicles the struggles they face, such as whether certain products can even be found in non-import form anymore, and if it's cost-effective to buy American.

A preview of "Made in America" can be viewed below.
