"American Fringe" is a television series that airs on National Geographic Channel.

White supremacists. Anti-gay churchgoers. Freedom-loving misfits. Gun-toting "hillbillies." Across all 50 states, there are provocative groups of Americans with unorthodox beliefs that do more than just raise eyebrows; they push the limits of our judicial system. Often challenged for their beliefs, many of these individuals and groups have chosen to remain outside of the limelight, shying away from the media attention ... until now.

Gaining unprecedented access and employing dramatic storytelling, National Geographic Channel pushes boundaries with a thrilling, in-depth look at some of the country's most controversial subcultures in "American Fringe."

The series premiere follows a notorious white supremacist's mission to transform a small rural community in North Dakota into a full-blown "Nazi Town." Throughout the season, each episode focuses on a different community, ranging from the infamous Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas, to a relatively unknown group of squatters living "lawlessly" among the ruins of an abandoned military base in Southern California. Their routines and practices may seem offensive or absurd to the general public, but their problems can be strikingly similar to our own — family, freedom and prosperity all come into play.

Using an immersive documentary style, the series chronicles the lives of people who function outside the boundaries of modern society. Insider-access footage, combined with candid first-person interviews from community members and their non-supporters alike, offer viewers a 360-degree perspective of the polarizing debates that surrounds each of these unconventional groups. The result is captivating television that doesn't pull any punches.

For National Geographic Channels, executive producer is Robert Palumbo; vice president of production and development is Lynn Sadofsky; senior vice president of programming and development is Alan Eyres; and executive vice president of programming and strategy is Heather Moran.
