Alex Holder's three-part documentary that is focused on former President Donald Trump's 2020 re-election campaign that attracted the attention of the House select committee investigating Jan. 6 has announced the release date.
The three-part docuseries "Unprecedented" will premiere on Discovery+ on Sunday, July 10, the platform announced on Wednesday.
Unprecedented focuses on Trump's 2020 attempt to get re-elected and how he and his family reacted to Joe Biden winning the election, features interviews with the former president, former vice president Mike Pence, Ivanka Trump, Eric Trump, Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner, as well as footage shot from the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.
Watch the trailer here:
The existence of the docuseries — and Holder’s close access to the Trump family during production — was not widely known until Politico broke the news on June 21 that the Jan. 6 select committee sent a subpoena to the filmmaker, asking for raw footage.
Holder has since testified before the committee and hasn't said much publicly about the experience.
On Wednesday, Discovery+ released a trailer of the documentary that showed new footage from the series.
At one point, Donald Trump Jr. is shown washing his hands, and he explains that he is doing so "after a bunch of fist bumps." In another clip, Eric Trump explains that during the re-election process, "My father was getting calls from many people who knew politics, 'Congratulations Mr. President, you have won once again.'"
The trailer also shows footage shot from the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.
Speaking in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter in June, Holder explained that, beyond documenting the events of the 2020 election, "the series really goes into this somewhat Succession-type vibe".
Holder also added that he believes viewers of Unprecedented will see "a portrait of a complicated, fascinating, controversial family in a way that I don't really think has been seen before."
