Lyndon B. Johnson

This three-part series will tell the story of Lyndon Baines Johnson, the brilliant and charming yet ruthless and combative political genius, who rose from an impoverished childhood in barren Texas hill country to become the 36th president of the United States. Johnson strove to make America a more just and equitable nation through his Great Society programs, but his presidency was undone by a far-away conflagration that he hadn’t started and did not know how to end—the Vietnam War. Thanks to revelatory recent scholarship, as well as thousands of hours of previously unreleased audio recordings of Johnson’s private telephone conversations, this mini-series will be an intimate look at a larger-than-life character whose life is an American tragedy of Shakespearean proportions.
