'Chicago is the Quintessential American City'

In the aftermath of a countrywide economic collapse, Chicago faces the challenges of improving its schools, neighborhoods and safety.

Can the city's leaders, communities and residents come together or will differences pull them apart?

CNN's Kate Bolduan interviewed filmmaker Marc Levin to ask him why the creators of the CNN Original Series "Chicagoland" picked that city to highlight.

Levin responded: "Chicago is the quintessential American city."

See the full interview above and be sure to tune in to CNN at 10p ET as "Chicagoland" premieres March 6.
