In Production:



Four Died Trying explores the extraordinary lives and calamitous deaths of President John F. Kennedy, Senator Robert Kennedy, the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and Malcolm X.


Filmed primarily from the vantage point of their children, close associates, and witnesses to their assassinations, the series considers the "turning” each of these men were making in the last year or so of their lives. Were they embracing ever-broader conceptions of the struggle for peace, social change and economic justice, and what forces may have stirred in opposition?  What lessons do their lives and deaths hold for us today, as the world once again trembles on the cliff of an uncertain future?


Six years in the making, with nearly a hundred interviews and counting, Four Died Trying is scheduled for release in November 2023, to help commemorate the 60th anniversary of President Kennedy's assassination.
