Discovery, Robert Redford Team for Watergate Doc

Retrospective to feature WaPo journos along with Dustin Hoffman, Jon Stewart

Discovery Channel has partnered with Robert Redford for special “All The President’s Men Revisited,” a two-hour pic that returns to the Watergate scandal more than 40 years later.

Doc gains access to those directly involved in Watergate, including journos, politicians and media members. Redford, who produced 1976’s “All The President’s Men” and toplined the film, will be featured in “Revisited” along with The Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward, fellow WaPo journo Carl Bernstein, and “President’s Men” alum Dustin Hoffman.

“Revisited” aims to provide contemporary context to the famed political scandal.

“I wanted this to feel like it was the first time you’re hearing this story even though it’s one of America’s most notorious political scandals,” said Redford. “Juxtaposing the reality of those who perpetuated the crime and those who pursued them, alongside those who portrayed them in the film, unfolds this historical turn of events in an entirely new way.”

Discovery and TLC Networks group prexy Eileen O’Neill added, “The events surrounding Watergate and Mr. Redford’s film both helped shape today’s worlds of politics and journalism, and I can’t think of a better time to revisit these true stories and compelling characters.”

Other notables slated to appear in the doc include Ben Bradlee, Jon Stewart, Tom Brokaw, Rachel Maddow and Joe Scarborough, among many others.

Discovery will bow “All The President’s Men Revisited” on April 21 at 8 p.m.

“Revisited” is produced for Discovery by Partisan Pictures in association with Sundance Prods. Peter Schnall serves as helmer and producer. Redford along with Andrew Lack and Laura Michalchyshyn are exec producers. Nancy Daniels and Denise Contis are exec producers for Discovery.
