What has shaped them? How would they lead, if elected president? And why do they want to take on one of the most difficult jobs imaginable?
On Sept. 27, FRONTLINE’s acclaimed election-year series The Choice returns with a two-hour, dual biography that goes beyond the headlines Trump and Clinton have generated to tell the inside story of who they really are.
Drawing on dozens of interviews with those who know the candidates best — friends and family, advisors and adversaries — as well as authors, journalists, and political insiders, The Choice 2016 will offer trustworthy journalism, big-picture context, and powerful new insights at a moment when voters are being bombarded with conflicting partisan stories about each candidate.
From veteran FRONTLINE filmmaker Michael Kirk and his team, it’s one of the most anticipated programs of the election season — and starting today, you can take a sneak peek at FRONTLINE’s just-released, full-length trailer.
Watch it right now, and mark your calendar for the premiere of The Choice 2016 Tuesday, September 27, at 9 p.m. EST/8 p.m. CST on PBS (check local listings) and online.
