Choice 2016, The 1x114

Since 1988, when FRONTLINE first presented a dual biography of U.S. presidential candidates Michael Dukakis and George H.W. Bush, The Choice has earned a reputation as one of the pinnacles of political broadcast journalism.

FRONTLINE’s critically acclaimed special returns with The Choice 2016, an interwoven investigative biography of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump that draws on dozens of interviews from those who know the candidates best—friends and family, advisers and adversaries—as well as authors, journalists and political insiders.

Award-winning FRONTLINE producer Michael Kirk goes behind the headlines Trump and Clinton have generated to investigate what has shaped two of the most polarizing presidential candidates in modern history, where they came from, how they lead and why they want to take on one of the most difficult jobs imaginable.
