Netflix Announces Original Documentary Feature, Get Me Roger Stone
"I was like a jockey, looking for a horse"
- Roger Stone in "Get Me Roger Stone"
Netflix today announces a original documentary feature, Get Me Roger Stone, which will have its world premiere at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival.
The whole world was riveted by the rise of Donald Trump, but there is only one man who has been with the mogul since the beginning, plotting his improbable ascent. Ever since political consultant Roger Stone became the youngest person called before the Watergate grand jury, his career as a master in the dark arts of politics has intersected many momentous low points in modern political history.
Stone, the subject of the documentary, has had an unconventional political career from engineering political scandals to upending the establishment. His relationship to Trump began in the 1980s, when Stone began planting the seed for the businessman to enter politics, culminating in 2016 with one of the biggest election upsets in U.S. history. A chronicle of the infamous Roger Stone, Get Me Roger Stone gives an up-close look into his rise and the transformation of American Politics.
Get Me Roger Stone, a Netflix original documentary, is directed by Morgan Pehme, Daniel DiMauro, and Dylan Bank and executive produced by Blair Foster, Lisa Nishimura, Jason Spingarn-Koff and Adam Del Deo. The film will launch globally on Netflix in spring 2017.
