Director Liz Garbus is filming a Showtime documentary at the New York Times offices that centers on the publication’s Donald Trump coverage, according to CNN.

The tentative title is “The Fourth Estate” and will focus on reporters working on scoops about the current administration. Garbus has been filming in the offices since the inauguration in January and is also shadowing individual reporters in Washington, D.C. and New York as they cover Trump, who has previously criticized the Times as “failing.”

The documentary will center not only on the paper’s political reportage but also its efforts to remain viable in the digital age.

The project is set to air in four parts and premiere in 2018, with filming to continue through January 2018, CNN reports.

Showtime declined to comment. The network previously has taken aim at the Trump presidency with its documentary series “The Circus.”

Garbus’ previous films include HBO’s “Nothing Left Unsaid: Gloria Vanderbilt & Anderson Cooper” and Netflix’s “What Happened, Miss Simone?”
