"Absolutely enthralling" - The Telegraph ★★★★

In the tradition of Frost/Nixon and Goodnight, and Good Luck, The Eichmann Show is an intense, absorbing and unique take on a singular and extraordinary moment in television and political history.

The behind-the-scenes true life story of groundbreaking producer Milton Fruchtman (Martin Freeman) and blacklisted TV director Leo Hurwitz (Anthony LaPaglia), who, overcoming enormous obstacles, set out to capture the testimony of one of the war's most notorious Nazis, Adolf Eichmann. He is accused of executing the 'final solution' and organising the murder of six million Jews. This is the extraordinary story of how Eichmann's trial came to be televised and the team that made it happen.
