HBO DOCUMENTARY NEWS SERIES AXIOS RETURNS FOR FALL DEBUT THIS SUNDAY, OCTOBER 20; NEW EPISODE LOOKS AT REPUBLICAN SENATORS� ROLE IN THE IMPEACHMENT PROCESS, INCLUDING INTERVIEWS WITH SENATORS LINDSEY GRAHAM AND MITT ROMNEY

NEW YORK, NY, October 18, 2019 � The fall season of the news-breaking documentary series AXIOS debuts this SUNDAY, OCT. 20 (6:00-6:30 p.m. ET/PT) with four episodes over the next four Sundays, exclusively on HBO.

The series will also be available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and partners� streaming platforms.

The fall premiere features a look into the impeachment inquiry. If a majority of the House of Representatives vote to impeach President Trump, it is up to the Republican-held Senate to determine what happens next. AXIOS sits down with two Republican Senators, Mitt Romney and Lindsey Graham to discuss their views on the impeachment inquiry and beyond.

AXIOS national political reporter Jonathan Swan�s conversation with Graham and AXIOS co-founder Mike Allen�s conversation with Romney delves into their thoughts on the United States military pullback from Syria, the Turkish offensive against the Kurds and the impact that could have on American foreign policy.

Also, AXIOS plugs into one of the fastest growing sporting phenomena � eSports, including a rare sit-down with Bobby Kotick the CEO of Activision Blizzard to discuss the future and financial viability of the industry.

Finally, Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren is known for having a lot of plans. For one of her most ambitious ones, she turned to two French economists, Emmanuel Saez and Gabriel Zucman. Mike Allen talks with them about their work on a �wealth tax� and how it would impact some of the wealthiest Americans.

HBO has renewed the AXIOS-DCTV partnership for two additional years, continuing to bring HBO audiences impactful and discerning documentary news coverage of politics, business, foreign affairs and technology through 2020 and 2021. AXIOS is a co-production of HBO Documentary Films, AXIOS and DCTV; executive produced by Jim VandeHei, Mike Allen, Roy Schwartz & Evan Ryan; directed and produced by Perri Peltz and Matthew O�Neill.
