Frontline “Police on Trial”

Premieres May 31 at 9 p.m.

FRONTLINE and the Pulitzer Prize-winning staff of the Minneapolis Star Tribune present Police on Trial: a new, 90-minute documentary that examines one of the most pivotal events in the history of race and policing in America.

Two years in the making, the documentary draws on unique on-the-ground reporting and filming, from the earliest days after George Floyd was killed, to the trial and murder conviction of Derek Chauvin, to the ongoing struggles for police accountability and reform.

It features never-before-published video of prior uses of force by Chauvin; exclusive interviews with former senior police officers who say they faced repercussions for speaking out about problems within the department; and intimate conversations with members of George Floyd’s family, as events unfolded over time in Minneapolis.
