BOSTON, MA – October 3 — The award-winning PBS investigative documentary series FRONTLINE will air a new, 30-minute investigation with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) examining the global entanglement of political power and secretive offshore finance, and how U.S. trusts are sheltering millions in controversial assets.

The documentary, titled Pandora Papers, will air on PBS and will be available to stream online on Tuesday, November 9 at 10/9c. Watch the trailer for this special report now.

This multiplatform project, known as the Pandora Papers, is part of a worldwide investigation with ICIJ that draws on a trove of nearly 12 million confidential documents.

For close to two years, ICIJ has led an investigation into these documents with more than 600 journalists from 150 media organizations, including FRONTLINE. The investigation reveals the hidden assets and secret deals of some of the world’s wealthiest and most powerful people, including more than 130 billionaires, 35 country leaders and some 300 other politicians and public officials.

Shared with the ICIJ by an anonymous source, these documents include records from 14 financial service providers around the world.
