Thanks Mike.

I also know what they are going to say, but with the roster of people this show has, forget it.

As Oliver said in the story for Variety, it's no exaggeration to say that it's the most distinguished collection of talent and knowledge ever assembled on the JFK case.  Hands down.

And its all geared around what the ARRB declassified, and what the public does not know about.

Goodbye Mr. Shenon.

Bravo !!

It will be interesting to see how the mainstream U.S. media responds to this.

Really great news. We all no doubt remember mainstream media going after Stone’s JFK months before its release. That clearly backfired.

David Talbot wrote on Facebook today:

I'm very proud to be on camera in Oliver Stone's important new documentary series, "JFK: Destiny Betrayed," which has just been acquired for worldwide distribution by the fast-growing indie studio AGC Television. Many authors and researchers over the past half century have worked diligently to expose the truth about the violent overthrow of the Kennedy presidency, a national trauma that America never fully confronted -- and from which we've never fully recovered. But even the... most successful of our books have only reached limited audiences. Oliver Stone, on the other hand, changed history with his 1991 film "JFK" -- which created a whole new generation of Warren Report skeptics (including me) and forced Congress to pass the JFK Records Act, resulting in the release of thousands of relevant government documents. (The CIA is still stonewalling Congress and refusing to release thousands of other documents -- what does THAT tell you?)

Quoting from the AGC press release, Variety reports more about Stone's new documentary TV series, which is being co-produced by the deeply knowledgeable Kennedy author James DiEugenio...

The AGC statement went on: “Stone will put Kennedy’s assassination in context politically, and present interviews, documents, and forensics reports that will change forever how Kennedy’s life, political career, and assassination will be considered.”

Those interviewed in the series include Judge John Tunheim, chairman of the Assassination Records Review Board, criminologist Henry Lee, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Professor James Galbraith (son of President Kennedy's advisor John Kenneth Galbraith), and bestselling author and Salon founder David Talbot.

“It’s not an exaggeration to state that this series features the most distinguished collection of talent and knowledge on the JFK case ever assembled,” said the AGC Television press release.

AGC Television president Lourdes Diaz added: “We have long admired Oliver Stone and his work, and the revelatory information his new documentary brings forward not only sheds a new light on JFK’s presidency and his assassination, it informs us about our contemporary world,”

“This documentary film represents an important bookend to my 1991 film. It ties up many loose threads, and hopefully repudiates much of the ignorance around the case and the movie,” Stone wrote.

This is excellent news. Congratulations to Jim and Oliver Stone. It should

be terrific. Could you give us more information? One source says it's

a documentary, but another says it's a documentary series. Is it finished

shooting and editing? Reportedly it will be released in November 2020,

but in/on what venues, theatrical and/or cable?
