New Trailer Features Director Oliver Stone Discussing The Making Of The Four-Part Event Premiering Monday, June 12 At 9 PM ET/PT

NEW YORK - June 8, 2017 - Showtime Documentary Films has released a new extended clip from Oliver Stone's unprecedented conversations with Vladimir Putin, THE PUTIN INTERVIEWS. The clip is pulled from hour four of the special, which features Stone's most recent discussion with the Russian president this past February, following the U.S. presidential elections. In the newly released clip, Putin offers his opinion of his former Cold War foe, Senator John McCain, that sheds light on how Putin views today's global affairs in a historical context. Additionally, a new video for THE PUTIN INTERVIEWS was released that features a behind-the-scenes look and interview with Stone, about the making of the television special.

THE PUTIN INTERVIEWS will have its world television premiere on SHOWTIME over four consecutive nights starting on Monday, June 12 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. For the new clip, go to: https://youtu.be/le7fv_9TfcE. For Oliver Stone's thoughts on the special, visit: https://youtu.be/FvNo0jRj7is.

Granted intimate access to both Putin's professional and personal worlds, Oscar(R)-winning writer and director Oliver Stone (Platoon, Snowden), with the help of his longtime documentary producer Fernando Sulichin, interviewed the Russian leader more than a dozen times over the course of two years. Since first becoming the president of Russia in 2000, Putin has never before spoken at such length or in such detail to a Western interviewer, leaving no topic off limits. In scope and depth, THE PUTIN INTERVIEWS recalls The Nixon Interviews, the series of conversations between David Frost and Richard Nixon that aired in the spring of 1977, 40 years ago.

The project joins an esteemed list of documentaries under the Showtime Documentary Films banner, many of which focus on the lives and legacies of culture-defining figures, including the Emmy(R)-nominated film LISTEN TO ME MARLON, WEINER and ZERO DAYS. Other upcoming Showtime Documentary Films that will debut on the network include RISK, the latest documentary from Oscar winner Laura Poitras (CITIZENFOUR), giving viewers an inside look at WikiLeaks, Julian Assange and those who surround him; WHITNEY. "CAN I BE ME," exploring the incredible career and complicated life of Whitney Houston; and a feature-length documentary about the extraordinary life and times of comic legend John Belushi.
