A&E to Premiere Six-Hour Documentary Series BIOGRAPHY: THE TRUMP DYNASTY

A&E Network will premiere the six-hour documentary series "Biography: The Trump Dynasty" drawing from first-hand accounts and never-before-seen archival footage that examine the life and heritage of the 45th President of the United States. As part of the network's award-winning BIOGRAPHY series, the documentary spans three generations of the Trump family saga and offers an in-depth exploration of the influences that shaped Donald Trump's personality, celebrity, and ambition in business and politics. "Biography: The Trump Dynasty" premieres Monday, February 25 at 9PM ET/PT and airs over three consecutive nights.

"The BIOGRAPHY brand has always strived to document and explore the lives and stories of our nation's modern presidential leaders in order to better understand our country's past, present and future," said Elaine Frontain Bryant, Executive Vice President and Head of Programming for A&E Network. "'Biography: The Trump Dynasty' is a timely and compelling examination of the people, events, and experiences that have shaped our current president, and in turn, this unique moment in recent American history."

From THE KLONDIKE GOLD RUSH of the 1890s to the origins of a New York real-estate empire, the documentary provides an all-encompassing view of the Trump family that has rarely been seen. The series delves into Donald Trump's childhood in Queens, his risky move into the world of Manhattan real estate and the creation of a landmark residential skyscraper on Fifth Avenue, his notoriety as a best-selling author and reality television star, and the lead up to his 2016 presidential campaign.
