Rainbow Media's IFC is retooling its media criticism program The IFC Media Project. The new installment will be a four-part documentary series, with each episode focusing on one of four topics: fear, greed, disaster and war.

Each episode will be presented by a different journalist with expertise in the area that program will cover. The reporters are Max Blumenthal (Fear), Nir Rosen (War), Charlie LeDuff (Greed) and Andrew Berends (Disaster).

"Each episode of this original series takes a probing look at the media to reveal the real, untold stories behind today's biggest headlines," said Debbie DeMontreux, senior VP of original programming for IFC. "The series provides the type of exclusive, authentic content IFC viewers crave, and is in keeping with the network's ‘Always On. Slightly Off.' indie perspective we share with our audience."

The first two seasons of the IFC Media Project were hosted by former MTV News correspondent Gideon Yago, and were six episodes each.

The new season will kick off on IFC May 24, and run through May 27.
