Coming Attractions – Frontline Reports on Madoff


Next month, Frontline is running a report about Bernard Madoff on a PBS station near you. The episode premiers the week of May 12.

“Bernard Madoff’s success as a broker made the competition wonder how the man could produce such steady returns in good times and bad. The SEC investigated several times over the last two decades, but Madoff remained untouched until last December when he admitted it was all “one big lie.” Frontline producers Martin Smith and Marcela Gaviria unravel the story behind the world’s first truly global Ponzi scheme – a deception that lasted longer, reached wider and cut deeper than any other business scandal in history.”
