“Putin’s Revenge” Frontline Doc Coming January 30 from PBS Distribution

PBS Distribution has announced the upcoming release of Frontline: Putin’s Revenge (DVD: $24.99), slated for January 30. For months, reports of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election have dominated the headlines. Putin’s Revenge tells the epic inside story of how Vladimir Putin came to see the United States as an enemy, how U.S. intelligence came to believe that he targeted the 2016 presidential election, the fallout under President Obama and now the Trump administration, and the implications for the future of American democracy. Drawing on more than 60 interviews with heads of U.S. intelligence agencies, diplomats, Russian politicians, historians, and journalists, the documentary traces how Putin went from low-ranking KGB agent to long-serving president of a newly assertive Russia with the ability to wage cyber-war in the U.S. and around the globe.
