Days after the inauguration of Donald J. Trump, Showtime Documentary Films presents “Trumped: Inside the Greatest Political Upset of All Time” at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival.

This world premiere screening at the prestigious festival will be followed by the SHOWTIME premiere of the film on Friday, February 3 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on-air, On Demand and the Showtime streaming service.
