Discovery+ to Stream ‘Unprecedented’ Docuseries From Alex Holder – The Hollywood Reporter
Discovery+ revealed on Wednesday that the streamer has purchased Unprecedented, documentary filmmaker Alex Holder’s three-part series that has gained the attention of the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.
“Alex Holder’s ‘Unprecedented’ three-part docuseries about the 2020 election will be released on discovery+ later this summer,” a Discovery+ spokesperson said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter on Wednesday. The streamer touts that the series features “never-before-seen footage of the Trump family on the campaign trail and their reactions to the outcome of the election” and offers “intimate and unprecedented interviews with Trump, his family and others who were in the White House.” No release date was provided.
After announcing on Tuesday that raw footage from the docuseries had been subpoenaed by the House Select Committee, Holder himself is set to testify before the committee investigating the attack on Thursday. In his announcement that he had turned over footage, Holder said the footage related to the last six weeks of Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign.
“When we began this project in September 2020, we could have never predicted that our work would one day be subponaed by Congress,” Holder said in a statement. “As a British filmmaker, I had no agenda coming into this. We simply wanted to better understand who the Trumps were and what motivated them to hold onto power so desperately.”
More to come.
