Stanton told The Hollywood Reporter that he actually began filming video interviews in 2013, with the help of cinematographer Michael Crommett.

He noted how he always did his best to "recreate the experience through photos or words". Of course, it is no other than "Humans of NY".

Stanton began Humans of NY in 2010 and has featured portraits and interviews of almost 10,000 New Yorkers in the seven years since. Seven years later, his blog has expanded into capturing the tales of people from 20 different countries and launched into popularity amongst social media platforms such as Instagram and Facebook. The 12-episode series will be similar to photographer Brandon Stanton's project, which has been collected in a book, and feature interviews from more than 1,200 subjects who were filmed over the past four years.

Pete Flores, director of field operations for CBP in San Diego , said: 'CBP officers are often faced with unusual situations. World Wildlife Fund estimate there are 5000 tigers in captivity in the U.S. - more the the estimated 3200 in the wild.

Facebook is expanding its originals output by ordering a show based on blog series Humans of NY. "But I always knew that video would provide the closest thing to 'actually being there'". It will premiere on Facebook's brand new video platform, Facebook Watch, next week-and if the trailer's any indication, a lot more of the blog's signature sweetness comes through when you can hear people speak.

Oscar-nominated producer Julie Goldman, known for documentaries Weiner and Life, Animated, will executive produce the series.

Brandon continued: 'I'm often deeply moved by the people I meet. "Early on I realized that video would add a deeper layer to Humans of NY", he wrote. 'I wanted the television show to *be* Humans of NY. "Facebook has had a huge role in the creation of Humans of NY", he adds, noting that he was also attracted to the global reach of Facebook since two-thirds of his audience is worldwide.
