History documentary Watergate will have its theatrical release on October 12, 2018 in New York City and Los Angeles.
Produced by Representation Pictures for History, the documentary will premiere on cable on November 2. The six-hour event series recounts the events surrounding the Watergate scandal. The series presents new interviews with senior Nixon Administration officials, members of Congress, and journalists, along with archival material such as taped conversations between Nixon and members of his administration.
The documentary’s director, Charles Ferguson, commented, “I started working on Watergate four years ago as a purely historical detective story. But as our production went forward, it became increasingly clear that Watergate has never been more urgently relevant than today, and I felt an enormous responsibility to get this story right.”
