(NEW YORK – July 3, 2024) GZERO WORLD with Ian Bremmer opens its seventh season at a critical moment for both the US and the world. A deeply polarized American public will head to the polls this fall in what may be the most contentious election of our time. A deadly war between Israel and Hamas continues, and emerging AI technologies pose new risks for society. Host Ian Bremmer will once again offer insights, analysis, and thoughtful conversations with global leaders. Season 7 of the award-winning weekly global affairs series launches nationwide on public television stations beginning Friday, 5 July (check local listings). In the New York metro area, GZERO WORLD airs on Saturdays at 6:30 p.m. on THIRTEEN, Saturdays at 6 p.m. on WLIW21, and Saturdays at 7:30 a.m. on NJ PBS. It is available to stream at  

Opening the season is Bremmer's interview with Ambassador Riyad Mansour, Permanent Observer of Palestine to the United Nations. In a candid discussion, Bremmer challenges the diplomat as the two lay out the case for a two-state solution. In the first weeks of Season 7, Bremmer will also interview Argentina's controversial new president, talk with US Senator and former astronaut Mark Kelly, and hold a conversation with journalist Sally Jenkins about the politics of sports as the Paris Olympic Games begin.  

This season's themes and topics include the state of democracy globally, the governance of AI, the 2024 U.S. presidential election, and more.
