Anthony Weiner Documentary Trailer Debuts Amid His Scandal

The trailer for the upcoming documentary Weiner, which gives an inside look at Anthony Weiner‘s campaign to become the mayor of New York City, has debuted amid the former congressman’s latest scandal.

Showtime is releasing the documentary, which premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. It will air on Saturday, October 22 at 9pm.

Here is the synopsis: Anthony Weiner was a young congressman on the cusp of higher office when a sexting scandal forced a humiliating resignation. Just two years later, he ran for mayor of New York City, betting that his ideas would trump his indiscretions. He was wrong. With unprecedented access to Weiner, his family and his campaign team, Weiner is a thrilling look inside a political comeback-turned-meltdown. What begins as an unexpected surge to the top of the polls takes a sharp turn once Weiner is forced to admit to new sexting allegations. As the media descends and dissects his every move, Weiner desperately tries to forge ahead, but the increasing pressure and crippling 24-hour news coverage halt his political aspirations.

A new sexting scandal just hit Anthony and his wife Huma Abedin announced that they are separating following the revelation.
