Announcing: Discovery+ 'Faking It' Special on Donald Trump


Shearwater Media can now announce its production of a special 'Faking It' episode focusing on Donald Trump, exclusively available on Discovery+

The hour-long documentary titled 'Donald Trump: A Faking It Special' features Dr. Cliff Lansley, Professor Dawn Archer and Kerry Daynes analyzing the President's most famous television appearances and revealing the hidden truth in his words.

Clare Laycock, senior VP, head of lifestyle and entertainment brands at Discovery UK and Ireland, said: “After a hugely successful fourth series of Faking It, as well as the Discovery+ original Faking It: Jimmy Savile, I am thrilled to be teaming up with Shearwater once again on this brand-new, one-off documentary. Donald Trump is one of the most fascinating and divisive characters on the world stage, and putting his every word, movement and opinion under the watchful eyes of our trio of Faking It experts was too exciting of a proposition to pass up on!

Steve Anderson, executive producer at Shearwater Media, said: “Since his election victory in 2016, Donald Trump has been the most talked-about person on the planet. With The Washington Post counting more than 22,000 ‘false or misleading claims’ during his presidency, he’s a great subject for examination by our three talented experts. I am delighted to be working with Discovery again on another extraordinary commission on their new and exciting streaming service Discovery+.”


Donald Trump: A Faking It Special will be available to stream on Discovery+ on the 12th December
