Watch: Spike Releases Trailer for JFK Jr. Documentary
The life and legacy of John F. Kennedy Jr. will be explored in a new documentary that’s set to air on Spike TV this summer.
On Tuesday, the network released the first trailer for the upcoming film, titled I Am JFK Jr. The documentary features discussions with a number of celebrities, political commentators, and others who were close to Kennedy, who tragically died in 1999 alongside his wife and her sister during a plane accident off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard.
Directed and produced by Derik Murray, I Am JFK Jr. will take a look at how Kennedy dealt with living in the shadow of his father, the famed 35th President of the United States. It will also examine how he handled being under constant media attention as “America’s Prince.”
A few of the famous faces that are set to appear include Robert De Niro, Mike Tyson, and Cindy Crawford, in addition to political personalities such as Chris Cuomo and Ann Coulter.
I Am JFK Jr. will receive a limited theatrical release beginning on Wednesday, July 20, before making its Spike TV premiere on Monday, August 1 at 9 p.m. The film will then be available for digital download on Tuesday, August 2, and DVD on Tuesday, August 16.
