In the midst of a historic pandemic, surging unemployment and growing economic uncertainty, American voters will head to the polls this fall to decide whether President Donald Trump or former Vice President Joe Biden will lead the country for the next four years. As it has for every election since 1988, FRONTLINE’s acclaimed series “The Choice” will investigate the life stories of the two candidates: the roots of their drive to be president, the moments that shaped them and the life method that has brought them to this point.
From veteran filmmaker Michael Kirk, who has made four prior installments of “The Choice,” this two-hour special will prepare Americans not just to vote in the election, but to understand what drives the president who will be sworn in on Jan. 20, 2021, to lead a country in crisis.
