SHOWTIME OFFERS DOCUMENTARY SHORT FILM THE FAMILY BUSINESS: TRUMP AND TAXES FOR FREE ONLINE

Filmmakers Embedded With The New York Times For Over A Year

As They Broke Last Month’s Story On Trump’s Financial History


NEW YORK – November 2, 2018  SHOWTIME is offering the documentary short film THE FAMILY BUSINESS: TRUMP AND TAXES for free online and across multiple platforms. Directed by Emmy® nominee Jenny Carchman and produced by Oscar® nominees Liz Garbus and Justin Wilkes of THE FOURTH ESTATE, the film follows a team of New York Times investigative reporters through their diligent and intense efforts in uncovering the information that led to this exclusive report. The film is now available for online sampling on YouTube, Facebook and SHO.com. It is also rolling out across multiple television and streaming providers’ devices, websites, applications and authenticated online services and their free On Demand channels.

Embedded for more than a year inside The New York Times, Carchman and her film crew trail Times investigative reporters David Barstow, Russell Buettner and Susanne Craig as they expose the untold story of how Donald Trump became rich. Mr. Trump has proclaimed himself to be a self-made billionaire but what these reporters found offers a very different account, based on tens of thousands of pages of financial documents they obtained, including more than 200 Trump family tax returns.

THE FAMILY BUSINESS: TRUMP AND TAXES is produced for SHOWTIME by RadicalMedia with Moxie Firecracker Films, with Garbus, Carchman and Justin Wilkes serving as producers. Dave Sirulnick and Jon Kamen are executive producers.
