Series Description

FRONTLINE is investigative journalism that questions, explains and changes our world. Since 1983, FRONTLINE has served as PBS's flagship public affairs series. Hailed upon its television broadcast debut as "the last best hope for broadcast documentaries," FRONTLINE's stature is reaffirmed each week through incisive documentaries covering the scope and complexity of the human experience.

Program Description

Investigates the life and career of boxing promoter Don King, from his early street hustling days in Cleveland - where he once killed a man who owed him money - to his current position as the top boxing promoter in America. Correspondent Jack Newfield traveled to training camps and title matches, and interviewed fighters, managers and trainers to tell the story of this complex man.
