SHOWTIME(R) TO PREMIERE AN IN-DEPTH NEW DOCUMENTARY SERIES "ENEMIES: THE PRESIDENT, JUSTICE & THE FBI"

New Four-Part Series From Oscar(R) And Emmy(R) Winning Director Alex Gibney And Oscar(R) Nominated Director Jed Rothstein To Premiere Sunday, November 18

LOS ANGELES - August 6, 2018 - As the ongoing clashes between the Trump administration, the Department of Justice and the FBI continue to make headlines, SHOWTIME will premiere a new documentary series from Oscar and Emmy award-winning director Alex Gibney. ENEMIES: THE PRESIDENT, JUSTICE & THE FBI (working title) will provide an in-depth look into the long history of conflict between American presidents and the FBI. The four-part documentary series will premiere its first installment on SHOWTIME on Sunday, November 18 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. The announcement was made today by David Nevins, President and CEO of Showtime Networks Inc. at the Television Critics Association's Summer Press Tour.

Inspired by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Tim Weiner's book, ENEMIES: A HISTORY OF THE FBI, the series presents the long, complex history of presidents testing the rule of law and the FBI's job to enforce it. Yet, this history also reveals the abuse of power is not only reserved for elected politicians. Men of zeal within the bureau, too, have abused their power.

ENEMIES tells the story of the epic confrontations between the President and the FBI. From Nixon and Hoover to Trump and Comey, each battle illuminates a different facet of our democracy and the rule of law. Using the present as a prism, we look back to see which lessons held up, which didn't and how the current investigation of the Trump administration might turn out.

The series will include intimate interviews with current and former officials, including those who were present for these moments in history, as well as interviews with journalists who broke the stories. Additionally, ENEMIES: THE PRESIDENT, JUSTICE & THE FBI will feature rare archival video, audio and photographs juxtaposed with short, stylized reconstructed scenes that will place viewers in the room during some of these momentous historical events.

ENEMIES: THE PRESIDENT, JUSTICE & THE FBI is produced by Jigsaw Productions for SHOWTIME. Alex Gibney, Stacey Offman and Richard Perello are executive producers for Jigsaw Productions. Sarah Dowland serves as showrunner and executive producer. Alex Gibney (Taxi to the Dark Side) directs the feature-length grand finale episode. Jed Rothstein (Killing in the Name) directs the first three episodes with Svetlana Zill, Sarit G. Work and Emily S. Chapman producing. Vinnie Malhotra serves as an executive producer for Showtime. Tim Weiner is a consulting producer.
