Louis Theroux's Next Documentary Will Take on Donald Trump

  • Posted 13 months Ago

Having already tackled paedophilia, Nazis, alcoholism, and Scientology, investigative journalist Louis Theroux has announced that his next documentary will take on the current President of the United States, Donald Trump.

Speaking about the project, Theroux said it would be an "amazing challenge", adding that "it's hard to get your head around such a big subject."

"The challenge with Trump would be… something so abhorrent that walks on two legs and is a human being, you have to explore where his foibles come from […] It feels like a whole cultural, almost sea change in how the world is part of the post-Brexit wave of populism. The story seems to change every day with Trump. There’s something new bubbling under."

The as-yet-unnamed documentary will air on BBC in the near future. Stay tuned for trailers.
