About Us

FRONTLINE is investigative journalism that questions, explains and changes our world.

We tell the stories others can’t or won’t — from the rise of the NSA’s domestic surveillance dragnet, to the hidden history of the NFL and concussions, to the secret reality of rape on the job for immigrant women.

Our investigations have helped breathe new life into terrorism cold cases, freed innocent people from jail, prompted U.N. resolutions, and spurred both policy and social change.

We’ve been American television’s top long-form news and current affairs series since 1983, and we’ve won every major journalism and broadcasting award, including 104 Emmy Awards and 28 Peabody Awards. You can watch more than 300 of our documentaries online, for free, any time — and you can find our original digital reporting, interactives and analysis everywhere you are.

We answer to no one but you.
