Unprecedented, a three-part documentary series on President Donald J. Trump’s final months at The White House, during the 2020 election campaign and afterward, will be released on Discovery+ this July.
Director Alex Holder shot more than one hundred hours of footage with the former president as he refuses to concede the election to Joe Biden, leading up to events occurring at the United States Capitol on January 6th.
Recently, Alex Holder was subpoenaed by the January 6th committee for access to the raw footage he shot for the series. He was also interviewed by the committee, behind closed doors, last June. The Hollywood Reporter notes that the series’ existence was not known to the public until Politico obtained information that Holder had to give his raw footage to the committee and testify.
Unprecedented release date
The three parts of Unprecedented will premiere on July 10th on Discovery+. It is unclear how long the three parts are, but one assumes that the series will have three one-hour episodes focusing on certain aspects of President Trump’s last months at The White House and after.
Discovery+ has said that the series will give an “exclusive look into the lives and actions of Donald Trump and the first family as they navigate his 2020 re-election campaign. Witness the raw, behind-the-scenes footage, including the last interview given by Trump as president.”
The trailer released July 6, giving us insight into what the docuseries will feel like. The aesthetic feels very much in line with HBO’s fictitious TV series Succession, to which Holder said that he was inspired by that show to craft the docuseries’ vibe in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
The trailer also gives a feel on how Holder conducts his interviews and isn’t afraid to challenge the Trump family on multiple subjects, including directly asking the former president if they can talk about the events of January 6th, where the trailer ends.
