The Inventor Airs Sunday, March 19 at 8 pm ET
CNN will air a special presentation of HBO Documentary Film’s The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley. The film will broadcast on Sunday, March 19 at 8 pm ET.
The Inventor is an inside look at the multi-billion-dollar healthcare technology company Theranos and its founder Elizabeth Holmes, whose ambition spawned one of the biggest frauds in Silicon Valley history. Holmes was a brilliant storyteller and media handler who deceived the public, government officials, and corporate titans alike about her ‘revolutionary’ blood-testing device.
Emmy® and Academy Award® winning director Alex Gibney (HBO’s The Crime of the Century) takes viewers behind the scenes at Theranos, exposing rigged test results, defrauded investors, and how Holmes’s non-disclosure agreements prevented employees from being truthful.
