‘Wall Street’ director Oliver Stone cannot seem to get the fate of former President John F. Kennedy (JFK) out of his mind. After releasing the 1991 movie ‘JFK’ about the fallout from the investigation into the young president’s assassination, he also produced the 2021 documentary ‘JFK Revisited: Through The Looking Glass.’ He is now going to explore the topic further with the four-part documentary series ‘JFK: Destiny Betrayed,’ released through Shout! Factory, Altitude Film Entertainment, and Ixtlan.
Shout Factory said on their website they “will release JFK: DESTINY BETRAYED, Oscar®-winning writer and director Oliver Stone’s four-part deep dive into the ultimate American true crime murder mystery. Thirty years after his renowned film JFK, Stone takes viewers on a thought-provoking and eye-opening journey through recently declassified evidence in the assassination of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy. Subjects covered in the series include the early formation of President Kennedy’s foreign policy overview and his anti-colonial convictions, which put him in opposition to the Eisenhower administration, the CIA, and the Pentagon.”
They add, “The four-part series JFK: DESTINY BETRAYED is directed by Oliver Stone, written by James DiEugenio, produced by Rob Wilson for Ixtlan, and executive produced by Andrea Scarso, Amit Pandya, Peter Touche, Fernando Sulichin, and Angela Ceccio.”

They describe the pilot as follows,
“Oliver Stone introduces this first chapter, giving background on the Assassination Records Review Board, created by an act of Congress following the controversy of his 1991 film, JFK. Going back to November 22, 1963, this episode explores the aftermath of President Kennedy’s assassination, and the early suspicions of his brother Robert Kennedy that more than one assassin was involved. Contrary to popular belief, the Warren Commission, the official government investigation into Kennedy’s murder, was not unanimous in their beliefs that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone assassin.”
The documentary series will debut on March 8, 2022, on digital platforms, but will also have a short theatrical run.
